  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together 1 cup half and half and the cornstarch until smooth. Add remaining half and half. Over low heat, bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Remove from heat.

  3. Return milk to low heat. Add chocolate; stir continuously, scraping pan, until thick.
  4. Cool. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

This recipe is easy and foolproof. I found the bittersweet chocolate too bitter for my tastes in this pudding and I am a dark chocolate lover. Since no additional sugar is added I think semi-s...
