  • Whisking constantly, heat over medium until the first large bubble sputters, about 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook, whisking, 1 minute. Remove from heat; immediately pour through sieve into bowl. Add butter, vanilla, and chocolate; stir until smooth.

  • Place plastic wrap on surface of pudding (to prevent a skin from forming); chill at least 3 hours (or up to 3 days). To serve, whisk until smooth; divide among serving cups, and garnish with shavings.

this recipe is pure chocolate, decadent goodness. i have used bittersweet choc chips in place of chopping a bar to make life a little less messy, and it worked well

Delicious and extremely rich, so a little goes a long way- we were able to get a lot more than 4 servings out of it. If you opt to make it with bittersweet chocolate vs. semisweet, whipped cream is a must.

OMG! I added 1 t. of instant espresso powder to this, and it is fan-freaking-tastic. I also didn't bother straining since it was just for my fiance and me, and it was smooth, rich, and delicious.

OMG! This was very easy, I didn't even put it through the strainer. It came out smooth and silky and my family loved it. I'll definitely give this to my friends and family.
