Decadent Chocolate Custard
Yield : 6 servings
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
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.
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.
Pour custard evenly among 6 (3-ounce) custard cups. Cool completely. Cover; chill 1 hour or until serving time.
