The English call any dessert a pudding, but this is really pudding! You can use your preference of milk, the more fat you use the richer it will be. I did not include the 3 hour chill time. Enjoy this chilled dessert after any meal. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups milk
  • 34 cup semisweet chocolate, chopped finely (you can use anything from generic chocolate chips to a high quality chocolate, you get what you pay )
  • 2 eggs
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 34 teaspoon salt
  • whipped cream, to garnish
  • chocolate shavings, to garnish

Directions

  1. Scald milk in a saucepan over medium low heat (bring it almost to a boil in a thick bottomed saucepan, stirring constantly). Remove from heat, immediately add chocolate and stir until it has melted.
  2. Whisk together eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a large bowl. I would get these ready in the bowl before I prepare the milk.
  3. Add the warm chocolate milk mixture in a slow stream, whisking contents in the bowl constantly and then pour mixture back into pot.
  4. Cook gently over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon for 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture thickens.
  5. Divide pudding among six ramekins or small bowls, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours and up to 2 days. Serve puddings topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

I made for a 4 serve recipe but got 6 serves, my sweet bowls are small but only used 1 large egg (the recipe called for 1 1/3 scaled back to 4 serves) and used a good quality Lindt milk chocolate but the taste of the chocolate did not come ouut as much as we would have liked, will consider a dark chocolate next time (even the DM agreed to this one and usually prefers milk chocolate in recipes hence why I used milked chocolate) but still very enjoyable, thank you Nif, made for Went to Market tag game.

Really delicious pudding. For whatever reason, my pudding was a little gritty. I topped it with whipped cream and enjoyed every bite. Thanks for posting.

So much better than pudding out of a box. I used Ghirardelli chocolate chips that were blended in the Vita-Mix. After scalding the milk everything went back into the Vita-Mix for a quick blending before cooking on the stove top. The pudding was garnished with fresh strawberries.
