Homemade Chocolate Custard

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 6 oz. high-quality semi-sweet chocolate, Chopped
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 pkg. Delicious Orchards Chocolate Sugar Cookies, crushed
  • Strawberries
  • Orange chocolate melts

Place cream and milk in a heavy two-quart saucepan. Cook over medium to high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture just comes to a boil. Immediately remove from heat. Add chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth.

Whisk yolks in a bowl just to blend. Gradually whisk warm chocolate mixture into beaten yolks. Return chocolate mixture to same saucepan. Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture
thickens and just begins to bubble. Do not boil.

Pour custard evenly among 6 (3 oz.) custard cups. Cool completely. Cover, chill one hour or until you are ready to serve.
