January 8th, 2009

Recipe excerpted from Around The World Cookbook by Abigail Johnson Dodge copyright 2008 DK Publishing.

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 oz. Mexican chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cornstarch and the sugar. Whisking constantly, slowly add the milk. Add the chopped chocolate.

  2. Set the pan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce is beginning to boil. Continue whisking and boil 1 minute.

  3. Using pot holders, remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter.

  4. Carefully pour pudding into small serving bowls. Cover each one with plastic wrap. Press the plastic directly on to the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
