Here’s another recipe I like.


A scrumdiddlyuptious way to impress your friends and relatives!

1/4 c sugar

1 egg

2 T cornstarch

1/4 t salt

2 c milk

6 oz quality chocolate (or semi-sweet chips!)

1 T butter

1 t edible lavender

1 t vanilla

(T=Tablespoon; t=teaspoon)

Mix dry ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Whisk in milk. Heat on medium, stirring constantly. It should take 10-15 minutes to thicken, make sure you keep stirring it or you’ll be sorry! Once small bubbles begin to form at the edges, it should be plenty thick. You want it to be just boiling. Don’t let it boil like crazy. Stir it one minute more.

Remove from heat. Stir in butter, vanilla, chocolate and lavender (a light hand w/ the lavender & the vanilla, please!). Let cool, chill. Put plastic wrap on top of pudding if you dislike “skin”. Alternately, pour into a graham cracker (or Oreo) crust and chill. Let stiffen 2-6 hrs.

To serve, top with homemade whipped cream, Cool Whip, store-bought, etc. and garnish with the berry of your choice (raspberries, blackberries or strawberries are all delicious in the summer!). Serve with ice cream or frozen vanilla yogurt if you like.
