Chocolate Pudding

This smooth chocolate pudding has a wonderful creamy texture and a delicious taste. It is quick to make since you can use the microwave instead of cooking it on the stovetop. This allows for older kids to make it, too.

4 dessert dishes or a medium bowl


2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups whole or 2% milk
1 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla
