  1. In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Place over medium heat, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and vanilla. Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving.

YUM! This recipe gets five stars not only because it tastes so good, but also because it's TWO desserts in one. You have your pudding.. and spoon some into some popsicle molds and you have homem...

My usual chocolate pudding recipe calls for 1 egg...and I just ran out. So I decided to make this and it turned out great. 1/2 cup of sugar wasn't quite sweet enough for me, so next time I mig...
