In a previous post on puddings, we promised we'd double back and share our chocolate version when we got to our Valentine/chocolate feature. Being women of our word, here it is.
The Best Chocolate Pudding on the Planet
3 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP corn starch
2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 oz dark chocolate (Ghirardelli double chocolate chips recommended)
1 tsp vanilla
In medium saucepan, whisk sugar, corn starch, and cocoa powder. Add milk and cream, cook on medium or medium low heat stirring frequently til pudding thickens and starts to bubble. Cook for one minute more, making sure pudding doesn't burn. Remove from heat, add chocolate and vanilla. Stir til melted.
Chill and serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream, or serve warm. If you are having a particularly bad day, eat it straight from the pot.
