Who can resist a simple but incredible delicious chocolate treat? Chocolate Pudding with Strawberries is the perfect gift from your kitchen to your loved ones this Valentine’s Day! I cannot remember who said, “Sometimes the best dishes are the simplest,” but it is certainly true with this.

Note: Did you know that the word “chocolate” comes from the Aztec word “xocoatl” in reference to the bitter drink made from cacao by the Aztecs and Mayans in Central America?

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups whole milk

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pint strawberries

Direction:

In a saucepan, whisk together sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Add milk, whisking to combine, set pan over medium heat. Bring to boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, and cook until pudding thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the heat, stir butter and vanilla. Ladle pudding into four small bowls and let cool. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
