How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk. Set bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Cook, stirring constantly, 8 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°. Remove bowl from heat; add chocolate, vanilla, and, if desired, rum, stirring until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.

Step 2

Pour chocolate mixture evenly into 10 (4-ounce) ramekins or small glasses. Cover and chill 8 hours. Garnish with raspberries and mint, if desired.

Step 3

Tip: Mixing in a splash of rum or brandy for adults adds a little touch of sophistication.

Step 4

Kids Can Help: Kids can stir the chocolate with the help of a parent and watch it transform into this delicious dessert. They can also garnish the top with the raspberries and mint.

Delicious and easy. Even easier if you use semisweet chocolate chips so you don't have to chop up the chocolate.

Great flavor and super easy to prepare. Be warned though, the consistency is a bit grainy: think mousse rather than pudding. Serve with whipped cream on top and definitely add the rum.
