Yesterday being Valentines Day was if anything a great excuse to make dessert! Inspired by Andy Deas‘ coconut milk apple pudding, we decided to make a chocolate version. It was so sinfully easy that I can hardly call it a recipe but if you are looking for a special occasion dessert that is still somewhat paleo (minus the sugar in the chocolate of course) and tastes like you slaved away for hours; I highly recommend our Chocolate Custard! To make this treat 100% paleo, stick to Andy’s version for a yummy anytime snack!
1 can coconut milk
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon cinnamon
A splash of rum (optional)
In a sauce pan, melt the chocolate chips into the coconut milk over medium low heat while stirring with a whisk. Add the cinnamon and the splash of rum. Pour the custard into small serving dishes and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Top with homemade whipped cream. If you do not want your kids to acquire a taste for liquor just yet, you can always pour half of the custard into serving dishes before you add the rum to the remaining half for grown ups! I am sure you can make this a million different ways so get creative and enjoy! Makes seven 1/4 cup servings – less if you serve in larger serving dishes.
