Bittersweet Chocolate Pudding
In a medium-size heavy-bottomed saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder and nutmeg. Gradually add milk, whisking constantly to keep mixture from getting lumpy.Advertisement
Transfer saucepan to stovetop, and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Bring to a boil (about 10 minutes), then boil 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Stir until all pieces are melted. Stir in vanilla. Strain into a large bowl, then either cover surface with plastic wrap or divide into individual cups and cover. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours. Serve with whipped cream or whipped topping, dusted with cocoa, if desired.
