Ingredients

  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 5 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • whipped cream and chocolate shavings, for topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, chocolate and salt and warm over medium-heat; stir until the chocolate melts. Gradually whisk the hot chocolate mixture into the egg mixture (1/4 cup at a time), whisking quickly, until you have warmed up the egg mixture. Pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan and keep whisking until thickened- 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in the vanilla, then divide among 6 serving cups. Cover each with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well set (at least 2 hours).
