You'll find lots of possibilities here! Just choose what sounds good and follow the directions exactly -- should be excellent!

Here is my Mom's recipe; just thinking about it brings back countless wonderful childood memories. My family would be so impatient to eat it, we always ate it still warm/hot. In fact, my brother and I thought pudding was supposed to be eaten warm until we were in high school! This recipe makes vanilla pudding, but to make it chocolate, just melt in chocolate chips while it's hot.

Serves 4

3 egg yolks
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c flour
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 c milk or cream
2 Tbsp. Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
Chocolate chips (for chocolate pudding)

1. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a room temperature saucepan and mix well.
2. Stir in flour and salt.
3. Turn heat to medium and gradually pour in milk or cream, stir constantly until pudding thickens and starts to boil. (If you don't pay close attention or stop stirring, you will get tiny, dumpling-like balls in your pudding).
4. Reduce heat and boil 2 minutes longer, stirring.
5. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla, followed by chocolate chips, if desired.
