Pink chocolate pudding

If you are looking for a instant dessert this is what you've been looking for.I wanted to make a simple yet delicious(to the tongue and eyes) dessert.Since we are a bunch of choco-holics at home, I thought i'd give this a try.I loved it and now waiting for the other two to give me their comments :)

I found this recipe here there's a gallery of chocolate desserts and otherwise,this one like i said interested me as its got just minimal ingredients that are bound to be in your kitchen.

Preparation time : 15 minutes + setting time.
Makes 4 bowls

You need
Milk 2 cups
Sugar 4 tablespoons
Corn flour 1 and half tablespoon
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Red color 2 drops(optional)
Cocoa powder 2 tablespoons
Almond shavings,orange rind,chocolate shavings for garnish(optional)

  •  Mix the sugar and cocoa powder in with the cold milk and mix well.
  • Now heat this milk mixture on a low flame until the milk and cocoa mix well stirring continuosly.
  • Mix the corn flour in a few tablespoons of the milk mix in a glass/bowl and make a lump free corn flour mixture.
  • Now pour this corn flour mixture into the hot milk mix and stir vigorously to avoid any lumps on a slow flame.This will thicken as you keep heating it.(Do this on a slow flame else it will get lumpy).
  • Keep heating until its thick enough to set in the bowl,and turn off the heat.
  • Allow to cool and pour into wet bowls.
  • Once the pudding cools, refrigerate for a few hours.
  • Garnish with almonds,chocolate or orange rind (or all) and Serve chilled :) 
- Sugar mentioned above was a little high for me.You can reduce the amount to suit your taste.
- The corn flour mix will thicken the milk and so stir continuously while you pour the corn flour into the milk.And keep stirring until the mixture becomes a nice thick lumpless mix.I was a little scared about making it too thick so my pudding didn;t set too thick its a little wobbly.But tastes wonderful all the same. 
-Red color is just for the color you are welcome to omit it.
