Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 ounce bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk (or 2% for lower fat)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. in a medium sauce pan mix together the milk, cornstarch, cocoa, salt and sugar.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave, or double boiler. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Whisk the chocolate into the milk mixture, bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat to low, and continue cooking, mixing with a rubber heat proof spatula, or wooden spoon, scraping the edge of the pan to incorporate all the ingredients. Cook for 2 minutes – mixture will be thick on glossy.
  4. Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla. Pour the pudding mixture into a heat proof bowl though a fine strainer, pressing lightly with a spatula to eliminate any solid materials; discard solids. Cover the pudding directly on top with plastic wrap to keep skin from forming on top of the pudding.
  5. Cool for at least 4 hours before serving; will keep for 2 days.
