Recipe Information
Another of my mother's good, old-fashioned recipes!

Caroline, from New Zealand

Serves/Makes:4 or more for dessert

  • 3 oz (84 grm). dark chocolate (called "Energy Chocolate in NZ and is not your usual "sweet" chocolate)
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) milk
  • 1-1/2 pints milk
  • 2-1/4 oz (63 grm). cornflour or corn starch
  • 1-1/2 oz (42 grm). white sugar
  • 2 drops vanilla essence
  • Place the 3 tbsp (45 ml) of milk into a medium sized saucepan.
  • Add the chocolate (broken into small pieces).
  • Dissolve stirring over a low, gentle heat.
  • Take off of heat.
  • In a large jug mix the cornflour with a little of the second measurement of milk and put the remainder of the milk into a small saucepan to heat.
  • When quite hot, but not boiling, add it to the blended cornflour and stir.
  • Pour this into the larger saucepan (containing the melted chocolate) and stir.
  • Cook until thickened, then add the sugar and a little vanilla essence.
  • Transfer to a fancy serving bowl, or individual serving dishes, and chill.
You can serve with whipped cream and fruit, but it is just as good on its own!
