Chocolate Custard - the perfect nightcap

Submitted by:
This makes a perfect sweet snack for two - it just fills two of our ramekins. I would make more if it was for a proper dessert.

Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time:

Serves: 2

Dietary guidance: v 


300ml milk
2 tbl sp (gently rounded) of cornflour
2 tbl sp sugar
1 tbl sp cocoa powder (homebrand is perfectly fine)
1/4 tsp vanilla essence


Put the cornflour in a little round mixing bowl. Add a tiny bit of the milk and mix into a smooth paste (make sure it's really smooth or you'll have lumpy custard). Add the other stuff and more milk if necessary.

Pour mixture into a small saucepan (or microwave bowl) and heat gently (stirring constantly if on the stove) until it thickens and is about to boil.

Stir in the vanilla just before serving.
