DECADENT CREAMY CHOCOLATE CUSTARD RECIPE

This rich and creamy custard can be made entirely on top of the stove–no need to bake in a water bath.

Remember to buy a high-quality chocolate for the best flavor.

SERVINGS 6

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup  Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 6 ounces high-quality semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large  Eggs (yolks only)

METHOD

  1. STEP 1

    Place cream and milk in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture just comes to a boil. Immediately remove from heat. Add chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth.

  2. STEP 2

    Whisk yolks in bowl just to blend. Gradually whisk warm chocolate mixture into beaten yolks. Return chocolate mixture to same saucepan. Cook over medium heat 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and just begins to bubble. Do not boil.

  3. STEP 3

    Pour custard evenly among 6 (3-ounce) custard cups. Cool completely. Cover; chill 1 hour or until serving time.
