A simple, delicious dessert, good for any time of the day
Prep and cook time: 10 minutes Cooling time: 4 hours
1/4 cup packed brown sugar (50g)
3 Tbsp cornstarch (24g)
1/4 tsp salt
2 3/4 cups whole milk (650ml)1q
1/4 cup heavy cream (60ml)
8 oz (227g) dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in large saucepan. Whisk milk and cream into sugar mixture until smooth. Add chocolate and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened and large bubbles appear at surface, 2-3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in vanilla.
Transfer pudding to airtight container and place plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding (prevents the pudding from developing a “skin”). Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 3 days.
Serve with whipped cream if desired
