Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding
  • 1½ Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 cup dry milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter powder

At home:

Pack all the dry ingredients into a snack size zip top bag.

In camp:

Add the dry ingredients to your pot, slowly whisk in ¾ cup cool water till the dry items are fully blended. Bring to a gentle simmer over a low flame, whisking often. For a thicker pudding make sure you let it come to a bubble.

Eat warm or let sit and cool down, for a quicker cooling stash the pot in a snow patch or a cold creek.

Make it mocha by adding in ½ to 1 tsp freeze-dried instant coffee or espresso. This is a sweet pudding so you may want to cut the sugar by 1 Tablespoon if you don’t have a sweet tooth.
