Number of Servings: 5


    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 Tbsp cornstarch
    Pinch of salt
    2 cups whole milk
    1 large egg
    4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


Whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan. Gradually whisk in the milk. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly, and boil, whisking, until pudding is thick, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Immediately beat the egg lightly in a medium, heat-proof bowl, such as a hard plastic or ceramic mixing bowl. Very gradually add the hot chocolate mixture to the egg, whisking constantly. Whisk in the chocolate chips until they are melted and the mixture is smooth.

Pour the pudding into the ramekins or cups (I put them in 4 oz plastic containers). If you want, cover the surface of each of the pudding cups with some cut out wax paper to prevent a skin from forming on the top of the pudding. Refrigerate, covered, until cold, at least 2 hours.

Serving Size: Makes five 4 ounce servings
