Chocolate Espresso Pudding

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield 4 servings
Soy milk, which is available in most large supermarkets, is as high in health-promoting isoflavones as much-touted tofu--1 cup contains 80 milligrams, an amount that has been shown to stave off osteoporosis. It is sold in cartons that are generally found on the baking aisle of the grocery store.

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
