This recipe was given to me by a very dear friend. You want homemade chocolate pie? You can't go wrong with this it is from scratch and remarkable.
whole milk or 1 can canned milk remaining with regular milk
egg yolks - save whites if you're making meringue
vanilla (i use real vanilla)
1In large kettle mix cocoa, sugar, salt and flour and whisk together.
2In separate bowl whisk together egg yolks and milk. Add egg/milk mixture to your kettle and put on stove over medium heat.
3Bring mixture to a boil whisking "constantly" and continue to cook, while whisking, until thickens and bubbly all over. Take off the burner and stir in butter and vanilla.
4Once the butter has melted your chocolate pudding is ready to put into your crust. You can then top with meringue or cool and cover with whipped cream.
