Ingredients
  • 2/3  cup  natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/4  cup  cornstarch
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 3  cups  whole milk
  • 1/2  cup  whipping cream
  • 10  ounces  bittersweet chocolate (60 percent to 62 percent cacao), chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  dark rum (optional)
  • 2  teaspoons  vanilla extract
  • 1/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  unsalted butter, melted
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 12  3/4-inch thick baguette slices
  •  Natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  •  Dark grapes (optional)
Directions

1. In large heavy saucepan whisk cocoa powder, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Add 1/2 cup of the milk; whisk to a smooth paste. Whisk in remaining milk and whipping cream. Stir constantly over medium heat until pudding thickens and begins to bubble at edges. Stir 30 seconds more. Add chocolate; stir 1 minute to melt. Remove from heat; stir in rum and vanilla.

2. Transfer pudding to lightly oiled 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Cook, uncovered, for 2 hours at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

3. For cinnamon toasts, in small bowl combine brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp. salt. Spread on one side of each baguette slice. Place on baking sheet. Broil 5 to 6 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until toasted and sugar mixture is bubbly.

4. Sprinkle pudding with additional cocoa powder. To serve, cut in wedges or, with a large spoon, spoon in free-form wedges. Serve with cinnamon toasts and grapes. Makes 12 servings.
