So I asked, "what would you like?"
He closed the fridge and said, "chocolate pudding."
Being the good wife that I am, I hopped online in search for a really good chocolate pudding recipe and found one by Tyler Florence. It was really easy and took about 15 mins to make, not to mention it turned out smooth and declicious. At first I wasn't sure how it would turn out b/c I had never made pudding from scratch, I've always done it from the box, but my husband approved. YEA! So I wanted to share the recipe with you.
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
4 tsp cornstarch
3 large egg yolks
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (to find really good pure vanilla extract go here)
1/4 tsp fine salt
3/4 cup whipped cream
- Put 1 1/2 cups of the milk, sugar, and cocoa in a nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a simmer, over med-high heat. Remove from heat.
- Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/2 cup of milk, cornstarch, salt, egg yolks and vanilla in a bowl. Gradually whisk the hot milk into the egg mixture. Return to the saucepan and cook over med-high heat whisking constantly, until the pudding comes to a full boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, and continue whisking until thick, about 2 or 3 mins more.
- Pour pudding into small cups. Cover w/ plastic wrap and refridgerate for at least 4 hour or ideally overnight until set.
