CHOCOLATE MALTED PUDDING
from "A New Way to Cook" by Sally Schneider

This extremely rich pudding tastes like a malted milk ball and is always greatly appreciated by both children and adults. Chocolate and cocoa powder fortified by espresso and vanilla provide intense chocolate flavor, while the malted milk gives it a creaminess despite the low-fat milk. For classic chocolate pudding, simply omit the malted milk powder.

PREPARATION

1.In a small bowl, blend 1/2 cup of the milk with the cornstarch.
2.Combine the malted milk powder, cocoa, and salt in a small heavy saucepan; slowly whisk in the remaining 3 1/2 cups milk, the chocolate, and sugar. Heat over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted. Whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, over very low heat until very thick and just beginning to boil, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Let cool, stirring occasionally until the custard is just warm.
3.Pour the pudding into individual 1/2-cup custard cups or small bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled and set.
In Advance: You can prepare the pudding up to 3 days ahead.
