Chocolate Carrot Pudding

“Another year closes
With feasts & memories few,
Only to begin again
With a January new.
Eat, travel, give a hug
And top with sprinkles some,
Live for the festivity
Yes, that time has come.
And in all that
Be a chocolate-loving friend,
Coz unless there is dessert
It’s never the end….”

2013 is almost over. Where did it go?

While you think of the days gone by, celebrate with some creamy carrot & chocolate pudding - and lots of sprinkles! This simple & quick recipe will come in handy when you have to entertain a gazillion people this holiday season. It certainly worked for me!

2 large carrots, grated
¾ cup brown sugar (adjust to taste)
½ cup heavy cream
125 gm dark chocolate (70% works best)
3 cups whole milk
Bring the milk and sugar to boil in a deep bottom pan. Add the carrots and cook till the carrots are soft and cooked through. Break the chocolate into pieces and mix it in. Let it simmer on medium heat till all the chocolate has melted and more liquid is absorbed – the consistency depends on your preference but personally I like it semi-thick so it feels creamy. Now stir in the cream, mix well and turn off the heat.
Serve warm with a dollop of cinnamon cream & sprinkles – just for that holiday feel.
