The ChocolateDoctor's Chocolate & Worm Dirt Cups

Ed Engoron, Co-Founder of Choclatique Author of Ed Engoron's Choclatique, Running Press, 2011


Worms in dirt may not sound appetizing, but kids will love it. Start by making a delicious homemade pudding that you will chill and later decorate with crushed cookies and gummy worms. I even like to add a sour gummy worm or two. Not that you ever have a problem with getting kids to eat a chocolate dessert, the dirt and creepy-crawly treats will have them ask for more. It’s all about chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. How can you go wrong?

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Cool Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 Hours 30 minutes
Yield: Serves 6-8

Ingredients:
3/4 cup Choclatique Rouge Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
6 tablespoons granulated white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt 4
1/2 tablespoons corn starch
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 cups chocolate milk
12 ounces Choclatique Heirloom Milk Chocolate Pastilles
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup crushed chocolate cookies
12 to 16 gummy worms

Directions:

  1. Thoroughly wash 6 to 8 new terra cotta garden pots and line with clear, clean plastic inserts (available at your local nursery).
  2. In a small bowl, mix the cocoa powder, sugar and salt and set aside.
  3. In a separate medium bowl combine the cornstarch and heavy cream.
  4. In a double boiler over simmering water, heat the chocolate milk until steaming.
  5. Remove from heat, pour half of the chocolate milk into the heavy cream mixture, while whisking.
  6. Add the cocoa mixture to the liquid and stir. Return the combined mixture to double boiler. Cook, stirring for approximately 5 minutes or until the pudding has thickened. I will leave tracks on the back of the spoon when you draw your finger across it.
  7. Remove from heat. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla extract, stirring until smooth.
  8. Divide evenly among the bowls and cover with plastic wrap pressed to the surface, to avoid a pudding skin from forming, chill for at least 2 hours or until you are ready to serve.
  9. When ready to serve apply an even layer of crushed chocolate cookies on top of the pudding.
  10. Top off with gummy worms for decoration.

ChefSecret: To give a more 3-dimensional look, stick a paper or plastic flower on the pot.
