Here’s how to do it

Rich Chocolate Pudding

In a heavy saucepan whisk together 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, and a pinch of salt.  Chop 4-oz of bittersweet or semisweet chocolate or add 4-oz of semisweet chocolate chips to the sugar mixture.

In a bowl whisk together 1-1/2 cups of milk (any fat content) and one large egg yolk.  Gradually whisk into the sugar mixture, bringing the pudding to a slow boil.  Boil 1 minute till thickened.

Remove from heat and add 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.

Put the pudding in individual serving dishes and serve warm or chill it with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to avoid a “pudding skin”.  Unless, of course, you like pudding skin.  Enjoy!
