My Husband and son fight over who gets the last dish of this delicious chocolate pudding...there is just a bit of kick to it with the red chile pepper addition, and cinnamon always goes well with chocolate...it's delicious! I've also used this pudding for pie...don't like spice? Just make the pudding without the spice...it's so good!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1/4 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
corn starch
2 c
milk
2 oz
chopped, unsweetened chocolate
2
egg yolks, slightly beaten
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/8 tsp
red chile powder or more if you like it hotter
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
unsalted butter

Step-By-Step

1In a medium saucepan, whisk first 3 ingredients.
2Over medium heat, whisk in the milk and chocolate.
3Keep stirring until chocolate is melted and mixture becomes thick and bubbly. Then cook another 2 minutes.
4Add about 1/4 cup of the pudding to the egg yolks and stir quickly to temper the eggs.
5Now, stir the egg mixture into the pan of pudding. Stir in the cinnamon and red pepper and continue cooking another 2 minutes.
6Remove pan from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.
7Pour into individual serving dishes or pre baked pie shell.
8Cover each dish or pie with plastic wrap and push down to cover the pudding completely, to keep from getting a tough skin on pudding, while cooling.

When ready to serve...add a dollop of whipped cream and some shaving of chocolate if desired.
