Here's a traditional chocolate pudding, which uses semisweet chocolate, butter and egg yolks to give it an ultra-velvety texture. Spoon whipped cream atop the pudding, and sprinkle with freshly ground coffee or fresh raspberries before serving.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon instant coffee crystals (optional)
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Mix sugar, egg yolks and cornstarch in heavy medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk. Continue whisking over medium heat until pudding thickens and comes to boil, about 5 minutes. Continue to boil 1 minute longer, whisking constantly.

Remove pudding from heat. Add chocolate, butter and vanilla; whisk until pudding is smooth. Divide between 4 dessert dishes. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
