Did I mention that it's easy?
1/3 c. white sugar
1/3 c. cocoa powder
3 T. corn starch
a dash of salt
2 c. milk
Also, try to have a tiny, stuffed dog in on the action-- that really helps.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes, then stir. Microwave for about 4 more minutes, or until thick, stirring after each additional minute.
Fear not, intrepid microwavers...
(by the way, my bowl 'o puddin' is only sitting on the stove because
I have zero (zip, nil) counter space. Don't try to cook on the stove with a glass bowl.
Put some plastic wrap right down on the pudding. This keeps it from getting a "skin" (ewwww...) as it cools. Cool in the fridge for a bit. 30 minutes is what we prefer-- that gives us just warm pudding that won't burn the kiddies' mouths.
