Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding
  • Time: 20 minutes
  • Yields: 4 portions

INGREDIENTS

250ml Milk

100ml Heavy Cream

100g Curious 68% Dark Chocolate buttons

50g Granulated Sugar

9g Cornstarch

20g Butter

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Essence

10-12 pcs Digestive Biscuits (optional)

METHOD

  • In a small pot, combine milk, cream and chocolate and simmer under medium-low heat until the chocolate melts completely. Keep stirring and do not let it come to a boil as it can cause separation of the cream. 
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cornstarch together. 
  • Gradually combine the dry mixture into the chocolate mixture while continuously whisking to avoid lumps.
  • Once well incorporated, return the pot to the stove and simmer while continuously stirring using a spatula or a whisk.
  • The mixture will start to thicken. Remove from heat once you reach the desired consistency. 
  • Add butter and vanilla essence into the hot mixture and mix well. 
  • Transfer into your desired serving bowls or glasses and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • To add a different texture to the dessert, add a layer of crushed biscuits beneath in the serving bowls or glasses. 
  • Before serving, garnish the pudding with desired fruits, nuts or whipped cream.
