Yes, Please

I haven't tried it yet but I can't imagine that this recipe from Self is anything less than delicious. My Grandma used to make pudding and leave it in the refrigerator in individual glass dishes, which I always thought was the ultimate treat. I am going to have to test this out for sure:
Serves 4
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups 2 percent milk
3 oz gianduja (hazelnut-flavored dark chocolate), broken into small pieces
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

Stir cornstarch with 1/2 cup of the milk in a bowl until completely dissolved. Heat remaining 1 1/2 cups milk, chocolate, sugar and salt in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking occasionally, until chocolate melts. Raise heat to medium; cook, whisking occasionally, until almost boiling (steam will rise from the surface). Stir cornstarch-milk mixture again until smooth; add to saucepan in a thin stream, constantly whisking. Bring pudding to a simmer, continuing to whisk. Simmer, constantly whisking, 1 1/2 minutes more. Pour pudding into a bowl or four 5-oz cups; press plastic wrap against the surface of pudding to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Serve cold.
