This week for the FNCCC we're working on recipes for Tyler Florence. I love his show Tyler's Ultimate. We love chocolate, I mean what female doesn't? So we decided to make his Chocolate Pudding. Of course, I had to tweak it since I didn't have cocoa powder. Here's what we did:
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
3 egg yolks
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla (I totally forgot to add this in!)
Warm the milk, sugar and chocolate chips over medium low heat, stirring to melt chocolate being careful not to scorch.
In a separate bowl, mix yolks with cornstarch and salt.
After the chocolate chips have melted and the milk resembles chocolate milk, temper the yolks with the mixture. Adding a little of the milk to the yolks and whisking to warm them. Then pour the yolk mixture back into the saucepan with the warm chocolate milk whisking until combined.
Increase temperature to medium heat and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 2-3 minutes or until it's thickened. Don't forget to add the vanilla extract before pouring into serving dishes. As for my "serving dishes", I don't own the cute little ramekins. I collect tea cups and thought they would look pretty. Refrigerate until ready to eat. Then serve with whipped cream or cool whip.
These are DELICIOUS!!! I will definitely be making them again!
