Chocolate Blancmange (Pudding)

Serves 8

  • 1 ⅓ cups sugar
  • 7 Tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 quart milk
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix sugar, cornstarch, and salt together. Gradually blend in milk. Cook slowly stirring constantly, until thickened. Add grated chocolate. Cook several minutes more to remove raw cornstarch taste. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and cool 10 minutes, stirring now and then. Pour into a 5-cup mold. Chill until firm, about 3–4 hours.

Box mixes of chocolate pudding are a pallid imitation of the real thing! Try this — it’s delicious.
