Level:

Ingredients
  • Crumb Base:
  • 24 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • Pudding:
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 6 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipped cream, for topping
Directions
  • For the crumb base: Throw the cookies and melted butter into a food processor and pulverize. Spoon some into the bottom of the serving glasses and set aside.

  • For the pudding: Combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan. Stir or whisk together. Pour in the milk and egg yolks and whisk together. Stir over medium heat until the mixture just barely comes to a boil and becomes thick, 6 to 8 minutes (maybe less, maybe more; just watch it!). The second it starts to bubble and thicken (note: it should be thick like pudding!), remove it from the heat. Add the chocolate, butter and vanilla and stir until everything is beautifully combined.

  • Pour the pudding into the glasses on top of the crumb base. Serve warm or chill in the fridge for 2 hours. Top with whipped cream!
