Like much of the country, Hotlanta has been living up to its name lately, with temperatures soaring over 100 every day and like 90%+ humidity. You feel like you’re being broiled every time you walk outside (get in the car, wake up and get out of bed, etc.). The humidity is really what kills you, it steals your breath and your will to do anything.
Suffice to say, I have been trying to turn on the oven as little as possible, since it makes my little 600-square-foot apartment feel like a hot yoga studio. But this is hard since I love roasting vegetables and baking delicious treats, and every weekend I try to treat myself to some dessert. So I was racking my brain this past weekend for something easy and cold, and then had the perfect idea. Chocolate cornstarch pudding. I have no idea where the recipe originally came from, but it’s been a staple in my family since I can remember.
Look at that awesome cold, creamy, sweet awesomeness. What’s especially awesome about this pudding is that 1) it’s super easy, 2) it doesn’t require many ingredients, and 3) it’s not too sweet or bad for you.
