While searching for a pudding recipe I came across so many that require the cooking to be done in the microwave. While I don't have a problem using the microwave I really wanted a stove top pudding recipe.
So this is what I came up with.
Chocolate Pudding Pops
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 3/4 cups whole milk( you can substitute low fat)
1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate squares
2 tablespoons butter
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon vanilla
In a saucepan over medium heat, add sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir the milk and chocolate in slowly. Constantly continue to stir until chocolate is melted and mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in egg yolks completely. Return to heat and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from heat add vanilla and butter stirring until incorporated.
Spoon into paper cups or molds and insert Popsicle sticks. Freeze until solid.
Dip in warm water to remove from cup or mold. Enjoy!
