Chocolate Pudding with Banana and Crackers

Chocolate is one of S's and my favourite indulgences. The July edition of "Prevention' magazine had a very easy chocolate pudding. The picture on the recipe page was so attractive that I had to make it that very day! so here goes the recipe....

CHOCOLATE PUDDING WITH BANANA AND CRACKERS:


Ingredients

3 Marie/digestive biscuits crushed
1 ripe banana, sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
3 cups skimmed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1&1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips( I used crushed bitter chocolate bits)
Method
1. Crush the biscuits and divide the biscuit crumbs evenly among 6 custard cups. Press into bottom. Top with banana slices and press again gently. Reserve a few banana slices for garnish.

2. Mix sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt in a large saucepan. Stir in milk little by little and whisk over medium flame until pudding thickens and comes to a boil.

3. Cook one minute longer. Remove from heat an stir in vanilla essence.
Pour into the prepared custard cups. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for atleast 2 hours. Top each serving with some chocolate chips and garnish the reserved banana slices.
