Chocolate Pudding-used 4 egg yolks; 25 more to go
The first of many egg yolk concoctions is this lovely, "dark, rich, chocolate Creams" originally seen on my friend, Carrie's blog; deliciously organic (recipe and blog post here). It looked lovely, her photos are stunning and the recipe called for egg yolks! Yeah!
Eli loved this. He said "it was heaven in a cup". This recipe is basically a ganache with egg yolks. So rich, so creamy, so decadent. I popped mine in the fridge and in doing so it lost it's silkiness. However, it didn't stop my rugrats from eating all of them, all 8 to be exact.
This is the perfect dessert for those nights when your friends decide to invite themselves to stay for dinner. This took all of 15 minutes to make.
12 oz of really good bittersweet chocolate
1 cup heavy cream
4 egg yolks
pinch of salt
1 Tbls. vanilla
Put chocolate (chopped) in a blender. Bring cream to a simmer over medium heat. Just when you see tiny bubbles start to form around the edge of the pan, pour over chocolate. Blend for 1-2 minutes, until smooth. Add egg yolks, salt and vanilla.
Pour into individual cups. I would suggest eating right a way. However, they are just as good, cold from the fridge!
