Susan Kiernan-Lewis


1/2-cup plust 1 TB unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBS cornstarch
1/8-tsp salt
3/4-cup sugar
4 egg yolks
2-1/2 cups whole milk
1/2-cup heavy cream
1/2-tsp vanilla extract
4-oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
Whipped cream for garnish
Chocolate shavings for garnish

In a medium bowl, sift together: cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Stir in sugar.Add egg yolks to the bowl and add 1/2 cup milk. Whisk until combined.

In a medium saucepan, heat remaining 2 cups milk and heavy cream over medium heat until mixture JUST comes to a boil. Slowly whisk milk mixture into the cocoa mixture.

Rinse out saucepan but do not dry (to help prevent scorching). Return custard mixture to saucepan, place over medium-low heat and stir in vanilla.

While stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, cook until custard has thickened slightly and is the consistency of mayonnaise--about 10 minutes. DO NOT LET IT BOIL.

Don't worry if lumps form. You'll now pour custard thru a fine sieve into a clean bowl, discarding any solids.

Add chopped chocolate in two batches, stirring until thoroughly melted.

Divide pudding among six serving dishes, cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours before serving.
