Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 cup chocolate-cookie crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

Chocolate Filling:

  • 1 can Evaporated Milk (370 ml- this is around 12 oz)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Bring milk to a boil in a saucepan. Turn off heat.
  2. Combine sugar, cocoa and cornstarch in a small bowl. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Whisk the sugar mixture into the egg and then whisk in the warm milk.
  3. Return mixture to saucepan.
  4. Cook on medium heat until mixture comes to a boil and thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate and stir until melted. Stir in vanilla.
  5.  Chill for pudding for about an hour or until cool.
  6. Combine cookie crumbs and melted butter until crumbs are coated and sticking together
  7. Whip cream for about 45 seconds. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff and cream holds its peaks.
  8. Spoon over chocolate filling. Sprinkle with shaved chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
  9. Serve Pudding parfaits in individual glasses: layer a couple of spoonfuls of the cookie crumb mixture at the bottom of the glass. Follow with a layer of the whipped cream mixture, and a generous amount of the pudding. Top with another spoonful or two of the cookie mixture and a final layer of the whip cream. Garnish with leftover cookie crumb mixture or chocolate shavings.
