This dark chocolate custard is a luxurious yet simple recipe that is sweet, creamy, easy to make and bursting with pure chocolate flavour. We use simple ingredients to make it plus you dark chocolate of choice. Everyone will love this and it's also vegan friendly.
In a pot off the heat, add plant-milk, sugar, vanilla and cornstarch. Stir well with a whisk until all the lumps of the cornstarch are gone.
Bring the pot on the heat, set it on low, and stir continuously until the liquid thickens into a creamy custard. It can take between 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the quantities.
When you have almost reached the consistency that you like, take off the heat and keep stirring for another minute. Now add the dark chocolate in pieces and let it melt with the residual heat of the custard while stirring.
Once the chocolate is fullymelted and incorporated your custard is ready.TIP: The custard will keep thickening while off the heat. Keep this in mind and turn off the heat slightly before you reach your desired thickness.
TIP: to check if your custard is ready take a wooden or silicone spatula, dip it in the custard, then run a finger through it. If the spatula stays clean, the custard is ready.
