Chocolate Pudding Cups

"I have always loved chocolate pudding, but I've never made it from scratch.  So I decided to turn my Grandma's Cream Filling recipe into a delicious chocolate dessert.  It is yummy served in cups with a dollop of whipped cream and would be perfect poured into a pre-baked pie crust for a delicious chocolate cream pie."
2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
3 Tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ounces Bittersweet Chocolate, chopped (from a 4 ounce bar)
whipped cream, if desired
Spray the bottom of a medium saucepan with non-stick cooking spray (to ensure that pudding won't stick to pan) and pour in milk.  Scald milk (heat milk just to the point before it's going to boil-about 180 degrees).  In a bowl, mix together sugar, cornstarch, flour and salt.  Add to heated milk and cook on low until thickened, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in egg yolks, 1 Tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly.  Return pan to the heat and add butter.  Cook and stir until butter is completely melted (2-3 minutes).  Remove from the heat and add vanilla and chopped chocolate.  Stir until chocolate is completely melted.  Divide pudding into 4 cups (1/2 cup each), cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.  When ready to serve, add a dollop of whipped cream on top.  ENJOY!
