  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder

  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt


  • Whisk together 1 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/3 cup cocoa powder into a medium sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • While cocoa mixture is heating, whisk together remaining 1/2 cup of milk, cornstarch, salt, egg yolk and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  • Remove cocoa mixture from heat and gradually whisk in egg mixture. Be sure to whisk vigorously to ensure eggs do clump.
  • Return mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium-high heat whisking constantly until mixture reaches a full boil.
  • Reduce heat to low to maintain simmer, continue whisking until thick, about 2-3 minutes. Pour into a serving bowl and cool for at least 4 hours.
