Chocolate Malted Pudding



6 egg yolks

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

6 tablespoons malted milk powder

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/4 tsp. salt

2 cups whole milk

1 ounce bittersweet chocolate, chopped

2 tablespoons butter

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 tablespoons heavy cream

Sweetened whipped cream

chocolate malt balls, chopped

Beat the egg yolks and sugar in a stand mixer until combined. Add the cornstarch, malted milk powder and salt to the egg yolk mixture and beat until combined. Heat the milk in a saucepan to boiling. Slowly pour into the egg mixture with mixer running; beat until well combined. Pour mixture back into the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate, vanilla, butter and cream until chocolate is melted. Pour into serving bowls. Cover tops with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming and place in refrigerator until completely chilled. Top with sweetened whipped cream and chopped chocolate malt balls.
