Chocolade Vla

Chocolade Vla

2 1/2 cups milk
3 T corn starch
3 T sugar
2 egg yolks
2 oz dark chocolate

gently heat milk in heavy sauce pan over low-medium heat, stirring frequently.

melt chocolate in microwave: add tbsp of warm milk and heat for 1:30 at 50%.  stir until smooth (melting for another 0:30 at 50% if necessary), add more warm milk and stir until smooth again.

mix cornstarch, sugar, and egg yolks until smooth paste

before milk starts boiling, turn off heat under milk.
slowly add hot milk, a tablespoon at a time, to egg mixture, stirring continuously
(this keeps the eggs from being cooked by the milk if the temp change is too rapid)

once you've roughly doubled the volume of the egg mixture, it should be warm enough

add the chocolate mixture to the pan of milk, stir thoroughly until looks like chocolate milk.
pour the egg mixture into the pan of milk.  warm until almost boiling, stirring constantly
this will only take a few minutes, stop when the custard has thickened noticeably.
pour custard into container and cover with plastic wrap.
cool for several hours or overnight for best taste!

chocolade vla and vanille vla
traditionally two flavors are poured into a bowl simultaneously, so the vanilla would be on one side and the chocolate on the other.  enjoy!
