Ingredients

  • 3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • small pinch of salt
  • dash of vanilla

Directions

  • Heat and stir until dissolved in a heavy sauce pan:
  • 3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • In a bowl beat until thick:
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • small pinch of salt
  • dash of vanilla
  • Stir the egg yolk mixture into the the chocolate mixture and continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened, simmer for a minute or two. Take off of heat, and let cool, stirring occasionally to prevent a skin from forming. When it is cool, pour into a mixing bowl and beat in:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • Beat until it's well mixed.

Notes

I like to use this as a filling for both chocolate and yellow cakes. It's also delicious as a frosting.
