Chocolate Muhallabieh Recipe

For Pudding:

6 Tbsp. corn starch
2 cups whole milk
3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. water
1/3 cup AHC Chocolate Drink Mix
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
6 Tbsp. shredded coconut
Dried rose petals, (food grade, from a spice market) (optional)

For Syrup:

5 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup water
1 Tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 bay leaf

For Pudding:

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and ½ cup of the milk to make a smooth paste. Set aside.

2. In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk, the water, chocolate drink mix, sugar, and salt. Whisk occasionally, until steam begins to appear, about 5 to 6 minutes.

3. While whisking, add the cornstarch mixture to the pot, in a steady stream. Continue to whisk until mixture reaches a thick, pudding like consistency, about one to two minutes.

4. Remove from heat, and pour pudding into six small ramekins. Cover each pudding with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until chilled and set.

For Syrup:

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, place all ingredients. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Once the pudding has had a chance to chill and set, discard bay leaf from the sugar syrup, and spoon a tablespoon of syrup over each pudding. Top each pudding with a bit of shredded coconut, and a sprinkle of dried rose petals, if using.

I have made chocolate pudding, but never a chocolate Muhallabieh. I like the idea of adding a syrup on top with coconut.
