Ingredients: 1 cup white sugar 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup cornstarch 1/4 teaspoon salt 5-1/2 cups milk 1/4 cup margarine or butter 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Directions: In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Place over medium heat, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in margarine and vanilla. Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving.
(optional) Other decorating supplies: glue, glitter, fake flowers, sequins, etc
On the posterboard draw a big mountain with the 10 Commandments on the top. Then draw 49 footprints (or rocks, or flowers, or whatever you want) leading up the mountain. Number them 1 to 49 starting from the bottom and moving up to the top. Use your decorating supplies to decorate around the mountain however you'd like. Each night that you count the omer, color in one of the footsteps (or rocks, or flowers, etc.)
