Ibought this magazine years ago when i came out, and this was our dessert of choice for many months. Alas, my magazine has been lost for years now, and I am thrilld to have this recipe again. Chocolaty and not too sweet, it still delivers a great kick to your sweet tooth.

Oh my stars, Kaarin this was a winner with us. Such simple everyday ingredients turns into comfort food sumpreme. I scaled the recipe down to 2 serving besides that I followed the recipe. This recipe is thick, creamy, smooth, silky with just the right amount of chocolate. It tasted like an imported French chocolate pudding that DH is addicted to except much much more better. This pudding tasted more rich and decadent then it really is. All I can say is no more French pudding for us and hello Chocolate Blanc Mange! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
