Chocolate pudding was a hit, not that I would know. Sad face.

June 17, 2011

On Wednesday night some friends and I went to Marina’s house for supper, gluhwein, port, chocolate pudding and old episodes of Friends. Watching Friends was so funny and a little depressing because we were all actually quite young when it was first on our TV screens, which makes us oldies now ha! Man, 90’s fashion was so wrong, just plain wrong and wrong again. Jeans too high and narrow. Chiffon skirts and hotpants, yikes! Waistcoats, but bad waistcoats and the shoes, oh the shoes, i’m still shuddering when I think about the clunky shoes. But despite the onslaught of 90’s fashion eyesores, we had such a cool evening. The food was amazing and gluhwein makes me very very happy.

I attempted the chocolate pudding recipe I posted about a while back. It came out really nicely, or so I was told. I’ve given up chocolate for the a little tiny while, I have a bet on with my copywriter, the first one to cave and trust me their have been moments, has to come to work wearing high pigtails for the whole day (me in pigtails, not a pretty sight) and carrying cash money to take the other one out for a fancy lunch.

Well anyway I didn’t have any, but Stubs scoffed hers down in about 6 minutes, so it must of been nice.

It was a really easy dessert to make if any of you are considering making it, but do keep in mind that I had to double the recipe to make 4 decent jars of it. Cool.

RECIPE:

* 2 tablespoons cornstarch

* 1/8 teaspoon (just a pinch) salt

* 1/3 cup cocoa powder

* 1/2 cup maple syrup or sweetener of choice

* 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten

* 2 cups milk

* 2 tablespoons butter

* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch, salt, cocoa powder, and maple syrup until smooth. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk and egg yolks. Slowly whisk the milk & yolks into the mixture in the pan. Set the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Boil and stir for 1 minute  Remove from heat and stir in the butter & vanilla. Serve warm (over ice cream) or chilled (with whipped cream).
