A homemade chocolate pudding is poured into a prepared graham cracker crust. Garnish with whipped cream and strawberries, if desired.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust

- 2 cups milk
- 2 egg yolks, beaten
- 1 tablespoon butter

Stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan. Gradually stir in milk.
