Yo. L1? What is that? Superbowl L1 that is…..I thought that ‘L1’ was one of the bones that I hurt in my back a few years back. Turns out it is the call sign for this year’s Superbowl 51. Well, I guess I should be tuning into the game play rather than loading up recipe counts. Truth is, nerds always prevail, even on Superbowl L1.

In addition to our annual pulled pork sandwiches and queso fundido, I always try to offer a dessert that satisfies the big kidsas well as the little ones. This year, I am busting out with an easy-peasy chocolate pudding and an ice cream sandwich hack on the side. The ice cream sandwich doesn’t require any baking at all, soif time is short, go for the ice cream sandwich, but if you have even a few minutes, you can whip up this pudding no problem! It was one of the first things I learned while I was in pastry school at The New School of Cooking.

10-Minute Pudding How To

To make short-work of this chocolate pudding, separate your ingredients into 3 groups:

  1. Saucepan Liquids (milk/sugar/chocolate)
  2. Mixing Bowl Ingredients (eggs/cornstarch/cream)
  3. Finishing Ingredients (butter/vanilla)

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, and cornstarch to a smooth consistency.

Add the scalded chocolate milk to your eggs/cream/cornstarch mixturea little bit at a time. If you add it too quickly, the hot chocolate will cook your eggs and give your pudding a funny consistency, so take your time. The goal is to raise the temperature of the eggs without actually cooking them.

Once you’ve got it all mixed up, pour the whole batch back into the saucepan and continue to cook it on the stovetop, stirring constantly.

You’ll know you’re just about done whenyou get these luscious bubbles.

Add in the butter and vanilla to finish, give it a few final stirs, and remove from the stovetop. Voila!

While it’s still piping hot, cover it with saran wrap, making sure that the plastic is touching the pudding so that you don’t get a skin, and then place it in the refrigerator until chilled.

To get that Super Bowl look, prep a bunch of votive glasses with white tape and pipe in the pudding using a piping bag or a ziplock.

Top them off with some fun paper pennants. I made these ones myself using templates from some of my favorite bloggers:Game Day Paper Chain(The Centsible Life), andCupcake Toppers How To,(Sarah Hearts). Kelly at the Centsible Life helpswomen live happier, healthier, and wealthier lives. Sarah from SarahHearts helps women be creative with awesome DIY ideas including a sampling of how to build easy cupcake toppers.

Start by drawing some game plays onto your ice cream sticks. I wanted to add hearts, but my husband insisted that the NFL doesn’t use hearts in their game day attack. Fine.

I used a Whole Foods 365 Ice Cream Sandwich Bar. I’m sure the available brands will vary, depending on where you’re shopping, but if you’re not sure which to buy, check out this post byTheKitchn where they compared 7 different brands. Lots of choices people!

Make These 10-Minute Super Bowl Desserts & Steal Game Day Cheers! (27)By TheSweetNerdCremes and Puddings

January 31, 2017

  • Prep: 5 mins

Ingredients

5 tablespoons sugar

4 ounces bittersweet chocolate

1 1/3 cup milk

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 egg yolk

2 tablespoons heavy cream

1/2 ounces butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

1Saucepan: Gently heat the milk and sugar in a non-reactive pot until warm. Then, add chocolate and melt into the milk until scalding.

2Separate Mixing Bowl: Whisk egg yolk, cornstarch and heavy cream. Temper (adding a hot liquid into an egg mixture) the scalding saucepan mixture into the cornstarch, yolk, and cream in a slow steady stream. The trick here is to whisk furiously as the hot liquid hits the egg mixture so it doesn't cook. It is easy, just keep your whisk moving and pour all of the mixture slowly.

3Then immediately, pour back into the pot and cook until thick.

4Finish with vanilla and butter then strain.

5Refrigerate for an optimal 6 hours.
