This was a favorite recipe of my Mom’s. She used to make it for us for dessert. It was always a treat to have and so much better than store bought pudding. It is easy too. This is really an old fashioned dessert.

  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon Cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tablespoon Cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cup hot water

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, sugar and 2 tablespoon cocoa. Add milk, melted butter and nuts. Pour this mixture into a 9 inch square pan. Mix the brown sugar and 4 tablespoon cocoa together and sprinkle over top of mixture in pan. Pour hot water over all of this. Bake @ 325 degrees for 45 minutes.

    Made this with Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa and half & half and it turned out good, in fact the more it chilled the better it got. Thanks for the recipe Nani.
