These easy dark chocolate pots are a simple custard style, eggless chocolate pudding. Soft, creamy and luscious, they take 5 minutes to make and only 6 ingredients. These are a perfect make ahead, no bake dessert everyone will love.
Course: Dessert, Sweets
50g(1/2 cup / 1.8oz) unsweetened cocoa
50g(1/4 cup / 1.8oz) dark (70%) chocolate
2tablespoons (notes)cornflour (cornstarch)
1/2cup(100g / 3.5oz) white sugar
2cupswhole (full cream) milk
2tablespoons(30g / 1oz) unsalted butter
whipped cream to serve
Place all ingredients (except the butter) in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk the ingredients together then heat, whisking occasionally until the chocolate has melted and the sugar has dissolved.
Continue to heat on low, whisking gently but constantly until the mixture thickens. It will turn into a thick pudding / custard and start to look almost bouncy when you move it in the pan.
Add the butter and stir it through until it's fully incorporated.
Pour the pudding evenly between 4 serving glasses (you can strain it first if you're worried there may be lumps).
Cover with plastic wrap pressed to the surface and chill for 2 hours before serving.
Add a little whipped cream right before serving.
I use a standard Australian 20ml tablespoon, equal to 4 teaspoons. Many countries use a 15ml tablespoon so check before starting.
