Chocolate Custard with Coffee Caramel

My mom loves custard pudding. When I told her that I made Caramel custard which was a success she told me to make some for her when she comes to Chennai the next time. Knowing that she loves the flavor of chocolate in anything (just like me), I made a mild chocolate pudding with coffee caramel. Mild chocolate cos I wanted the custard flavor to be predominant, coffee caramel cos I am a big fan of anything coffee. I intend to make a rich chocolate pudding soon and I will post it as soon as done.

~*What U Need*~
Milk - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar - 3 tablespoons
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Custard powder - 2 tbsp
Cocoa powder – 1 ½ - 2 tbsp

For the caramel
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Water -1 tbsp
Instant coffee powder – 1 tsp (I used Nescafe Classic)

How I Made

Coffee Caramel
In a wide pan, add the sugar and water and rotate the pan without stirring.
After few mins, you will see the mixture starting to boil and brown. Keep on rotating.
The entire liquid will start to turn a golden brown color.
When the brown color starts darkening, add the coffee powder, mix till combined, off the stove and pour the caramel into ramekins before it starts to harden.
Be careful. Do not touch the caramel as ur skin may get burnt. If touched, place ur skin under flowing cool water.

Chocolate custard
Take some milk from the mentioned quantity and mix the custard powder and cocoa powder without forming any lumps.
Bring the sugar and milk to boil and add the custard+cocoa liquid.
Stir for 3 mins. The custard will start to thicken. Remove the pan from flame.
Pour the mixture into the ramekins. Allow it to cool to room temperature. When done, refrigerate atleast for 8 hrs or firm in the sides and wobbly in the centre.

Topple the custard onto a plate and serve. The combination of rich chocolate and aromatic coffee is always heavenly and so was this.
