Snickers Pudding

All The Flavors Of The Perfect Candy Bar!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes + 4 hours refrigeration
Cooking Time: 10 minutes

2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup natural cocoa powder
4 tsp cornstarch
3 large egg yolks
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp fine salt
1 can Nestle’s Dulce de Leche
1 1/2 cups cold whipping cream
1/2 cup confectioners powdered sugar
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 Snickers candy bar, sliced (garnish)

Cooking Tools
Medium sauce pan
Medium mixing bowl
Hand held mixer
Plastic wrap

Put 1 1/2 cups of the milk, the sugar, and the cocoa in a nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a simmer, over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat.  Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/2 cup of the milk, cornstarch, salt, egg yolks, and vanilla in a bowl. Gradually whisk the hot milk into the egg mixture. Return to the saucepan and cook over medium-high heat whisking constantly, until the pudding comes to a full boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, and continue whisking until thick, about 2 or 3 minutes more.  Pour the pudding into 6 small serving bowls, let it come to room temperature.  In a microwave safe bowl, place the Dolce de leche and softened for about a minute, whisk until smooth and creamy. Place about a heaping tablespoon of Dolce de Leche in the center of the individual pudding and with the back of the spoon, spread to the edges.  Place plastic wrap over the room temperature pudding and place in refrigerator for 4 hours to chill.
Just before serving, pour the cream into a chilled bowl. Whip with a hand held mixer, and continue beating until soft peaks form, add peanut butter and confectioner powdered sugar and whip for additional 30 seconds until well blended. Take care not to over-beat the cream or it will be like whipped butter. Serve each pudding with a dollop of peanut butter whipped cream on top, and garnish with a slice of Snickers.
