EASY BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE PUDDING

Cola (I use COKE) takes the place of the milk in this pudding.  It adds a pleasant bittersweet flavor.  I great surprise for family and friends!

1 pkg (4-serving size) chocolate pudding mix (not instant!)
1 cup water
1 bottle (6 1/2-fl oz) cola beverage
whipped cream for garnish, if desired.

Combine the pudding mix, water, and cola in a saucepan.  Cook while stirring over medium heat until the mixture comes to a full boil.  Remove the pan from the heat and pour evenly into 4 individual dessert dishes.  Chill until set.  Garnish with whipped cream if desired.

Note:  You know this is an old recipe when the cola is called for in a 6 1/2 ounce bottle!  You will probably have to measure out your cola today!

I am a diabetic now and can still make this pudding.  Use a sugar-free pudding mix and I prefer a Coke Zero but Diet Coke would be okay, too.
