Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Heat 4 cups of the milk in a large saucepan over medium heat until steaming.

Meanwhile, whisk the sugar, hot chocolate mix, cornstarch and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in the egg yolks and remaining 1/2 cup milk.

Slowly add half of the hot milk to the egg mixture, whisking constantly until smooth. Gradually whisk the egg-milk mixture into the remaining hot milk in the saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Continue to cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture has thickened to a pudding-like consistency, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

Let the pudding cool slightly, stirring a few times to prevent a skin from forming. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding and refrigerate until it has completely cooled and thickened, about 4 hours.

Before serving, whisk the pudding vigorously until it's smooth and creamy. Spoon into serving bowls and top with dollops of whipped cream and a sprinkling of hot chocolate mix.
