I always use milk that is about to expire as an excuse to make homemade chocolate pudding. You can eat it hot or cold. My favorite way is to eat it warm with the skin left on and with a dollop of peanut butter. My husband likes it cold - no skin - and whipped cream. Any way you eat it - it is delicious!
Here is what you need: (You can double batch too.)
Add all but the vanilla to a medium saucepan and whisk to get rid of any lumps. Put on medium heat- but don't walk away for more than a minute - it can burn on the bottom. Stir every minute - or constantly- until it thickens. Once it starts to bubble - keep stirring and cook 2 minutes longer. Take off heat and add vanilla. Pour into your favorite bowls and top with a spoonful of peanut butter or cover with plastic wrap so skin does not form. You can refrigerate or eat warm - your choice. Makes 2 large bowls or 4 individual servings. YUM!!
