I love how quick an easy this is while being very elegant. Adding a little cayenne or mint or lemon/orange oil make for a different twist and flavour. Use the best chocolate you like for the best results. For those that cannot get it to set or that the texture is grainy. The solution is get richer cream and different chocolate. The cream is the one that prevents the setting. heavy cream is in the 30% fat range. That is the requirement. You can try whipping cream BUT some have added sugars. The organic types usually do not. So do not skimp, use the good cream. As for the graininess this is usually the chocolate. It could be too old or simply of a lower quality. Again this is a high end desert, not chocolate pudding. Pay a few dollars a bar for 70%+ cocoa content. If you find it too bitter add more sugar the intensity of the chocolate is what you are looking for. Hope I helped.

Please help me. Mine was in the fridge for over eight hours and did not set up one bit. I followed the recipe and instructions to the T, I even watched the tutorial video. I was really crushed when I went to serve this to my husband for an early Fathers Day treat.

Oh, this one's sinful. I made this on a large scale for a dessert bar I had for my son's graduation party. Out of the 7 desserts I made, this was the one people went gaga over. It's so simple. It's very rich. the serving size is spot on. Any larger and you wouldn't be able to finish it. It's funny 2 different people at my party described it as "See's candy truffle in a dish." This was said at two different times by two different people. This is a very rich, thick grown up pudding. Even my husband likes it, and he's not a real pudding person. Thanks so much Chef John. Ya got a winner here!
