Chocolate Pudding

ADAPTED from 101 Cookbooks

INGREDIENTS: 2 eggs, 6 ounces / 170 g of dark chocolate chips, 4 tablespoons water, 4 tablespoons fine grain sugar, 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, fine grain sea salt

DIRECTIONS: Separate the whites and yolks of the eggs. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until they hold very stiff peaks.

Combine the chocolate, water, sugar, butter, and a pinch of salt in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double-boiler, you can fashion one by combining the ingredients in a medium stainless steel bowl, and then placing this bowl atop a small simmering saucepan of water. The idea is to apply just enough gentle heat to melt the chocolate. Stir until the ingredients come together smoothly. Remove from heat, and beat in the egg yolks. Add the egg whites, and fold gently until the pudding is uniform in texture.
