I love browsing other food blog and I came across this recipe in moreover every blog...I know this recipe is going to be a keeper..
I thought of doing this last week, but somehow it got skipped always..Yesterday was the day and finally I made it. Before trying this, I thought this is going to turn some kind of chocolate custard like, but once I made it and tasted my first spoonful it taste so chocolaty and rich and yummy. Totally delicious..
I used plain dark chocolate chips to make this, But you could use your favorite chocolate like dairymilk or any chocolate. You need only 3 to 4 tblspn of that..I got around 2 big glassful of this rich rich desert, but it is a little too much for a single person..If you are serving this for parties, you could use mini glasses.Then I would say that you will get around 5 short glasses.
I would suggest you to add some nuts in this. It would be great if take some nut filled chocolates like dairymilk fruit and nut or something like that and use it. I decorated this with some cocoa and edible stars, you can do as you wish.
Ok here you go to the step by step recipe with pictures.
Milk - 400 ml / 1 ¾ cup / 14 fluid ounces
Cocoa Powder - 3 tblspn or as needed
Sugar – 3 tblspn or to taste
Custard Powder-2 tblspn
Vanilla Essence -1 tsp
Dark Chocolate Chips – 3 tblspn
Nuts of your choice ( optional)
Melt Dark chocolate chips either in microwave or double boiler and set aside.
Now take custard powder, cocoa, sugar in a mixing bowl. Add some milk and make it into smooth paste.
Now take the remaining milk and in a pan and heat it up..
When it starts to boil add the mixed custard batter slowly and mix constantly so that no lumps gets formed.( if you are afraid that lumps will form, then you can take the hot milk and add it into the mixed custard batter and mix well.Then pour the entire batter to the pan and heat it up)
Now mix this well till it gets thicken..It will take 5 minutes..Make sure that you keep the heat really low.
Add in the melted chocolate and mix well.Cook this for 2-3 mins on a very very low heat.
Now take it off the heat and fill your glasses with this.
