DARK CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER PUDDING

Alright people! I am back in the game! All it took was a few quality minutes of day dreaming and Julia Child!

People who love to eat are always the best people- Julia Child

By the way, for the record- Daydreaming is a reasonably good pass time.  I personally love the combination of Peanuts and Chocolate, and I wanted to think beyond the chocolate chikki that I make normally and I was feeling way to lazy to use the oven.  This recipe is a beautiful amalgamation of dark chocolate pudding and peanut butter pudding and will just make your Sunday, a perfect one.  This is a stove top pudding. And the only thing you need to make this as velvety and smooth as possible is… strong arms! Just a good whisk and a promise that you’ll make this pudding not just once! Basic Ingredients

For the  Peanut Butter pudding

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 Table Spoon Cornstarch

¼  Teaspoon  Salt

2 cups full fat milk

½ cup heavy cream

½ cup peanut butter

2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

For the Chocolate pudding

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 table spoon cornstarch

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa

¼ tsp salt

2 cups full fat milk

½ cup heavy cream

1 ½ cups grated dark chocolate

METHOD

PEANUT BUTTER PUDDING

Mix the cornstarch, sugar, salt in a pan. Do not worry about the sugar lumps. These will eventually dissolve in the milk. Then add 2 cups of milk and whisk really well. Turn the flame on to medium heat.  Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking occasionally along the way.  Be sure to whisk in the rounded corners of the pan so that pudding doesn’t burn.

Once the mixture thickens, take it off the flame and add the peanut butter and cream. Whisk it again till the mixture beautifully comes together.  Divide this into the different bowls you wish to serve the pudding in. Allow the mixture to set till you make the chocolate .

Follow the same procedure for the chocolate pudding.

Whisk the dry ingredients (cornstarch+brown sugar + cocoa) then add milk and whisk again. Heat the mixture on a medium flame. Once the mixture thickens, take it off the stove and add grated chocolate and cream. Rigorous Whisking makes all the difference. The more you do, the velvetier the pudding will be.

Now place the chocolate pudding mixture on the peanut butter mixture and allow it to set for about 3 hours. Cover the dish with a plastic film and refrigerate

Just remember 3 things

1) Medium Flame

2) Whisk

3) Patience

Just for that extra happiness- add some whipped cream before serving
