This is another recipe from the Collector's Edition of Quick Cooking Magazine. This edition came out in 1999. I made this Tuesday night before leaving for scout meeting. I didn't get to try it until late. It was wonderful. Creamy. I didn't have M&M's, so I used peanut butter chips on top. That was awesome!
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups milk
2 T butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
In heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add milk. Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat; boil and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Remove from the heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Spoon into individual serving dishes. Chill until serving.
Sprinkle with M&M's if desired.
Yield: 6-8 servings.
