Deepest Darkest Chocolate Pudding
When only the chocolatiest will do ..
First prep 12 ounces of dark chocolate - break into small pieces or coarsely chop. I used 85% dark from Aldi.
Lightly whisk together in a large pot (I use my 7 qt dutch oven):
3 cups white sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup corn starch
12 egg yolks
1/2 gallon (8 cups) whole milk
Slowly heat on stove, stirring almost constantly until it starts to thicken. This will take 12-15 minutes. When it starts to thicken turn off the heat, still stirring.
2 Tablespoons vanilla
prepared 12 ounces of dark chocolate
Mix chocolate into pudding mixture and let it sit a minute, then whisk until combined.
1 stick butter, cut into 8-10 pieces. Whisk until smooth and shiny.
Scoop pudding into cups - I ended up with 38 servings. This also works well as a pie filling for chocolate pie.
Serve garnished with whipped cream and a raspberry if you wanna get fancy!
