This recipe is part of the from the ocean menu.

2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter

1. Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt in a medium saucepan. In a small bowl, combine heavy cream, milk and vanilla. Whisk into dry mixture, until dissolved and well combined.
2. Place saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Whisk in chocolate, until melted, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in butter until completely melted.
3. Working quickly, ladle pudding into serving dish and cover tightly with plastic wrap, placing it directly on surface of pudding to prevent any air from getting to it. Refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour.
