Homemade chocolate pudding with strawberry dippers

What you will need:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pint strawberries with the stems

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Add the milk, whisking to combine, and set the pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, and cook until the pudding thickens, 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.

ladle the pudding into four 4-oz ramekins or small bowls and let cool.

serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled, passing the strawberries around for dipping.
