Dark-Chocolate Cremoso with Cornflakes and Fresh Fruit

  • TOTAL TIME: 40 MIN plus 4 hr chilling

Denser than chocolate mousse, this ganache-like cremoso is great for entertaining because it can be made in advance. Plus, the fruit salad and clever cornflake garnish take very little time to prepare.

  1. 1 cup whole milk
  2. 3 large egg yolks
  3. 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  4. 2 tablespoons sugar
  5. 7 ounces dark chocolate (70 percent), finely chopped
  6. 1 kiwi, finely diced
  7. 5 strawberries, finely diced
  8. 1 Bosc pear, finely diced
  9. 3/4 cup cornflakes, finely crushed
  1. In a saucepan, whisk the milk, egg yolks, cream and sugar. Whisking constantly, bring the mixture just to a simmer over moderate heat, then reduce the heat to moderately low and cook until thickened, 15 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the chocolate until melted.
  2. Pour the mixture into a heatproof bowl and let cool slightly. Press a sheet of plastic wrap onto the surface of the cremoso and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, until chilled and set.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss the kiwi, strawberries and pear. Spoon the fruit onto plates and mound the cereal alongside. Scoop the cremoso on top of the fruit and serve.
