A handy dish to have made if one happens to have been invited to a chocolate-themed party. The April 2005 issue of Cooking Light says this pudding is high in potassium, but more importantly it was so yummy I wanted to suck it up with a straw. I thought it had just the right amount of malt flavor, but if you want it stronger you can always add more.
Combine 2/3 cup malted milk powder, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup cornstarch, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a medium, heavy saucepan, stirring well with a whisk. Gradually add 4 cups 1% low-fat milk to sugar mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk until well blended. Place pan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat. Add 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips, and stir until smooth. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Pour pudding into a bowl; cover surface of pudding with plastic wrap. Chill. Remove plastic wrap; spoon 2/3 cup pudding into each of 6 bowls. Sprinkle each serving with 2 teaspoons crushed malted milk ball candies. Yield: 6 servings.Posted by astraea on April 17, 2005 | TrackBack
