Homemade White and Dark Chocolate Pudding

I made this homemade pudding as a light dessert to follow a heavy holiday meal. It's fairly easy to make and tastes delicious!

Homemade White and Dark Chocolate Pudding
·½ cup sugar
·3 TBS cornstarch
·¼ tsp salt
·2 cups skim milk
·1 TBS butter
·1 tsp pure Mexican vanilla
·½ cup white chocolate chips
·½ cup dark chocolate chips
·2 candy canes, crushed (optional)

Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk. Heat over medium heat until boiling. Boil for 1 minute, or until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Divide pudding in half into two separate pans. In one pan with half of the pudding, stir in white chocolate chips until chips have melted. In the second pan with the remaining half of the pudding mixture, stir in dark chocolate chips until chips have melted. Pour into a dish and place a piece of plastic wrap over the pudding, pressing the plastic wrap right up against the pudding. This will keep the thick skin from forming. Refrigerate until serving. Layer chocolate puddings in a dish and sprinkle with crushed candy canes before serving.
