Chill time 2 hrs
Yield Serves 6
This yummy pudding gets a double dose of smooth Milky Way candy; the chopped bars are both on the top of the finished dessert and hiding tucked away inside the creamy confection. Use leftover candy bars, or pick up a bag at the store.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped Milky Way Midnight bars (about 10 oz.)

How to Make It

  1. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt in a pan. Slowly whisk in milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking. Boil for 1 minute.

  2. Whisk yolks to blend in a large bowl. Whisking constantly, slowly pour half of hot milk mixture into yolks. Whisking vigorously, pour yolk mixture back into pan. Bring back to a boil and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Stir 1 1/2 cups Milky Way bars into pudding. Pour into 6 bowls or custard cups.

  3. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing directly on surface of pudding, and chill until set, at least 2 hours or overnight. Just before serving, sprinkle with remaining chopped Milky Ways.
