Ingredients:(Deep Chocolate Pudding)
7 ounce(s) dark chocolate
2 cup(s) whole milk
1 cup(s) heavy cream
3/4 cup(s) sugar
1/4 cup(s) cocoa
1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
1/4 cup(s) cornstarch
1/4 cup(s) (1/2 stick) butter
3/4 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
Directions:(Deep Chocolate Pudding)
- Chop the chocolate into very fine pieces. Combine chocolate, 1 3/4 cups milk, cream, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large saucepan. Stir vigorously using a whisk over medium heat until mixture simmers and is smooth and thick. Stir the remaining 1/4 cup milk and cornstarch together and whisk into the chocolate mixture. Simmer for a minute, whisking and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula. Add the butter and cook 1 more minute. Stir in vanilla.
- Serve pudding on its own or use for the filling in the Crepe Cake. Store refrigerated in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed directly onto the pudding surface to prevent a skin from forming.
