Another one from a friend’s grandmother.  This was a recipe that my mother-in-law asked me to make anytime we got together to eat.  Rich, creamy and so delicious.

Simple Ingredients:

  • 2 T cocoa
  • 3 eggs yolk
  • 3 1/2 T cold water
  • 3 1/2 T flour
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup hot water
  • 1/2 stick butter – room temperature
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 8 tart shells
  • Whipped Topping

With a fork, poke holes in tart shells.  Bake empty tart shells according to package directions.

(not pictured) Add ingredients, one at a time to a mixer, incorporating each one completely before adding the next ingredient.  Add the ingredients in the order given in the recipe.

Poor into a medium pot to cook on stove.

Stir continuously over medium heat until it thickens.  I look for mine to be the consistency of pudding.

Once it is the desired consistency, take the pot off the stove.
