I just made this recipe and it was fabulous. I substituted half and half for the milk, simply because that's how I roll. Then I sauteed some sliced almonds in butter and smothered them in cinnamon and sugar to put on top of the custard when it was done. The only caution I have for less experienced cooks is that putting the eggs into the hot mixture will, very likely, cause you to have lumpy egg parts in the custard. I went against my better judgment and did it anyway...then decided to strain it just in case. Sure enough, there were egg lumps in there. So, either strain it or add a little bit of the chocolate mix to the eggs before you add them to the saucepan. That should take care of that problem. Oh, and if you're impatient like me, you can put the custard in your freezer to cool it faster. I had mine cooled down in about an hour. The custard was incredibly creamy and delicious and I'd make this again any day when I felt like I needed a serious chocolate fix.
