Quick and Easy Chocolate Pudding

Recorded May 23, 2003.
3 T cocoa powder
3 T corn starch
1/3 c sugar
pinch salt
2 c cold milk
1/2 t vanilla extract
In a 1 qt saucepan, blend dry ingredients. Add a small amount of the milk, and mix until smooth. A flat-bottom whisk is ideal for the task. Stir in remainder of milk, and bring to a boil with constant stirring over medium heat. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Pour into small bowls, layer with plastic foil, and chill. Serves 4. Store cold. Variation: Garnish with crushed peanuts, malted milk powder, or whipped cream before serving.
