Good morning and Happy Sunday!
I want to get this delicious tapioca posted before I head out on a bike ride…. the air temp is 75 degrees right now and I want to take advantage of it before it heats up.
Well, that and it’s useless to spend my time cleaning up the backyard since there is another thunderstorm moving in later this afternoon….
Chocolate Tapioca Pudding – adapted from serious eats
7 tbs. small pearl tapioca (see note)
2 tbs. plus 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 large egg yolks
2 tsp. vanilla extract
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
Whipped cream for garnish
In small bowl slowly whisk about 1/2 cup hot tapioca mixture into egg yolks. Return yolk mixture to pot and stir to combine.
Stir in vanilla and chocolate until chocolate is completely melted. Transfer to bowl, cover, and chill until set, about 3 hours. Stir gently before serving to soften pudding. Serve with whipped cream on the side.
