Dark Chocolate and Earl Grey Pudding
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tea bags Earl Grey
- 4 sheets gelatin
- 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
- 3 cups heavy whipping cream
Place the milk, salt and tea bags in a small pot. Bring to a simmer, then remove from the heat and steep for at least 30 minutes.
Bloom the gelatin in ice water until soft. Bring the milk back to a boil, and then remove from the heat. Remove the tea bags and discard; add the gelatin to the milk, stirring until dissolved. Place the chocolate in a medium bowl. Pour the hot milk over the chocolate, and stir until completely melted. Cool to room temperature.
Using an electric hand mixer, whip the cream to soft peaks, and fold into the chocolate. Pour the pudding into desired serving container and chill to set, at least 4 hours.
