3 large egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon table salt
2 cups 2% milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add egg yolks, sugar, flour cocoa powder and salt to a medium saucepan and stir until combined.
Whisk in milk until smooth.
Turn on heat to medium and set timer for 10 minutes.
Whisk pudding continuously. As pudding starts to thicken – around minute 5- turn heat to medium low and continue to stir.
When timer is up, remove from heat and add vanilla.
Pour into a heat safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap – ensure the plastic wrap touches the top of the pudding so it doesn’t form a film.
*alternatively you can transfer to individual containers.
Refrigerate for 2 hours or more – up to 5 days.
