in a small pot, just below medium heat, bring 1-1/2 cups milk to almost a boil.
in the meantime, in a small bowl or 4 cup measuring cup, mix dry ingredients then stir in 1/4 cup milk and make a smooth paste.
stir in egg yolks well, and the final 1/4 cup milk.
when the milk in the pot begins to show tiny bubbles along the side and a bit of skin forming on top, stir in the chocolate mix and keep stirring with whisk until smooth and bubbly. (if lumps appear they will disappear with stirring)
pour into four ramekin dishes or individual dessert bowls, cover with saran wrap and allow to set and cool in the fridge.
notes: for a milk chocolate taste use nestle quick chocolate drink mix, but for a dark chocolate taste, add 4 tablespoons baking cocoa and a bit more sugar if desired. this recipe can easily be altered according to taste.
