Recipe: Baked Chocolate Custard
All you need:
¼ cup sugar
2 cups whole milk
Pinch of salt
½ cup Hershey chocolate syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons brewed coffee
All you need to do:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Put the custard cups or ramekins into a deep dish baking dish and set aside.
In a tea kettle, bring about 4 cups of water to a boil (for the water bath)… when water boils turn off the heat and leave the kettle until needed.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the milk, eggs, vanilla, chocolate syrup, coffee, sugar and salt.
Pour milk mixture into custard cups.
Place the baking dish with the custard cups into the preheated oven.
Carefully pour the hot water from the kettle into the baking dish so the water comes to about ½ to 2/3 of the custard cups.
Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the custard is set (a knife inserted into the center should come out clean).
Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Makes 4-6 servings depending on the size of the custard cups.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with a dollop of Mocha Whipped Cream on top.
