Ingredients

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed)

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/8 teaspoon (heaping) kosher salt

4 cups whole milk

2 cups half-and-half

3 ounces bittersweet chocolate

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3 ounces white chocolate, chopped

Whipped cream, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt. In a thin stream, pour in the milk whisking until smooth. In a thin stream, add in the half-and-half and whisk until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture through a fine sieve or chinois into a saucepan. Over medium heat, whisking the mixture constantly, bring to a boil. Boil gently 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the bittersweet chocolate and vanilla extract. Transfer the custard to a mixing bowl.
  3. Fill a large bowl with ice cubes, rest the mixing bowl on top, and add cold water to cover the ice cubes. Let the mixture cool, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula, about 15 minutes.
  4. Fold in the white chocolate and pour the mixture into 1-cup ramekins, cups or mugs.
  5. Refrigerate until well chilled. Serve cold with dollops of whipped cream.
