Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate-Biscotti Pudding

2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/4 cups heavy cream, plus more for whipped topping
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups crackers, (ie. Biscotti), coarsely hand crumbled
3 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate,finely chopped
1/2 cups hazelnuts, toasted, skinned, finely chopped
1/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted

Recipe Directions for Chocolate-Biscotti Pudding

  1. Recommended equipment: A 9 inch pie plate; a heavy bottomed saucepan, 3 quart capacity.

  2. Line the pie plate with plastic wrap, leaving a few inches overhang on all edges.

  3. Whisk the eggs with the sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in the cornstarch until no lumps remain.

  4. Pour the cream and milk into the saucepan, set it over low heat, and bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat, and slowly pour about l cup of the hot milk-cream into the egg bowl, whisking steadily, to temper the eggs. When blended, slowly pour the tempered eggs back into the saucepan of milk and cream, again whisking constantly.

  5. Put the pan back over medium-low heat, and whisk steadily until the custard heats and thickens. Don't let it boil, though it should bubble occasionally. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes, until it is quite thick.

  6. Remove from the heat, and stir in the crumbled biscotti, chopped chocolate, nuts, and cocoa powder. Stir continuously until the chocolate has melted and all the ingredients are evenly blended. Pour the custard into the pie plate, and cover with plastic wrap, laying it directly on the top of the pudding. Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.

  7. To serve: Remove the top sheet of plastic, invert onto a serving plate, and cut into wedges. Top with unsweetened whipped cream and coarsely crumbled biscotti (if you have any left) or crushed hazelnuts: in season, strawberries or raspberries would be wonderful. Servie 6 or 8.
