Mexican Chocolate PuddingCuisinart Original Recipe
½ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
¾ teaspoon sea or kosher salt, divided
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cayenne
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 cups whole milk
1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
In a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan, whisk the sugar, cornstarch, ¼ teaspoon of salt, cinnamon, cayenne and cocoa powder. Stir in the chopped chocolate.
In a mixing bowl, combine the milk, vanilla and egg yolks. Using the Cuisinart® Cordless Hand Blender fitted with the Chef’s Whisk, gently whisk together to fully combine. Add to the chocolate mixture and set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, whisking often to maintain a smooth mixture. Once the mixture comes to a boil, continue to whisk with the hand blender for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the butter.
Strain the pudding and then divide among six ramekins or custard dishes. Chill for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Note: to prevent a skin from forming on top of the pudding, cover with plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding.
Best served chilled.
