Warm hot chocolate pudding with oven roasted marshmallows on top.
In a medium saucepan whisk together half-and-half, milk, chopped chocolate and hot chocolate mix. While whisking constantly add in your cornstarch. Turn on heat to medium and whisk often until it begins to thicken.
Once it starts to thicken do not stop whisking. Making sure to get into the corners of the pan, whisk until it becomes thick enough that you can see the whisk marks in the pudding and it will coat the back of a spoon.
If you are serving this warm place it in your serving container of choice, distributing evenly between 4. If you are serving it cold place it in a bowl and place a piece of plastic wrap directly over the top surface of the pudding and refrigerate for 4 hours or longer.
To toast marshmallows turn on broiler. Place oven rack in the middle position in your oven.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray parchment paper with non stick spray. Place marshmallows onto the tray in a single layer. Place in the oven and watch them like a hawk until browned. It will only take a minute or two.
Gently remove marshmallows and place on top of pudding.
Note: You can also serve pudding in ramekins and toast marshmallows directly on top.
This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
