Very Chocolatey Dark Chocolate Steamed Milk Dessert
Never thought that I could make a chocolate steamed milk dessert chocolatier than that of Yee Shun Milk Company's. But I think I just did.
I started with dark chocolate milk instead of normal full fat milk ;)
I used 1 cup.
and to make things even more chocolatey...
Unsweetened chocolate powder and Hershey's dark chocolate chips.
I can't call this post a "recipe", since I really didn't measure stuff exactly...
To blend everything, you'll need to heat up the milk.
Heat the milk on stove top, add chocolate powder, chocolate chips and sugar, whisk everything until combined. Taste and adjust until you achieve what's yummy to you.
OK, we're done with the most difficult part of the "recipe" :D
Wow. Is it really that easy?
Yeah, otherwise, with my track record of failures, I wouldn't have even considered trying it.
Next, crack and beat two eggs.
Wait until the chocolate milk batter is just warm (so the eggs won't get cooked), pour into the beaten egg and whisk until all combined.
Hmmm, if I didn't think of the raw egg, I would've said cheers and drunk the whole thing. Run the batter over a fine sieve and pour into molds.
I just used my every day blue and white humble little bowls.
Place them on a plate for steaming.
If you have a steamer, congratulations, I envy you. Grrrrr.
I just used my wok.
In a wok, bring water to boil, add metal stand or you a plate/bowl placed upside down.
Oppps, forgot to tell you to cover the bowls with aluminium foil...please do so.
Place in the wok, cover wok and steam for about 15 minutes.
The surface should be a little jiggly....I think I've overdone mine a little, steamed for 20 minutes. Don't to what I did, guys.
But still...look at this...
A little spoonful of heavenly, silky, creamy, chocolatey deliciousness.
A little bokeh won't hurt, right?
Serve them hot, warm, or cold....but I just couldn't wait.
Some like it hot :)
