I've found the Ibarra chocolate in "gourmet shops" locally but have also ordered it from mexgrocer.com

Tim, here is the recipe. You'll have to play with the seasoning qtys - the recipe I made serves ~80. The toasted coconut really puts this over the top - and I'm not even a coconut fan...

CINNAMON CHOCOLATE PUDDING
Recipe By :a Chef's Journey via Ortega Mexican cooking
Serving Size : 10

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/3 tablespoons cornstarch
2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
16 fl. oz. Evaporated milk
4 ounces Semi-sweet Chocolate morsels
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
Garnish:
1/3 cup flaked coconut, toasted

Combine sugar, cornstarch & cinn. in med. saucepan; gradually stir in evap. milk.
Stir in morsels & egg yolks. (for large batches, temper egg yolks first)
Bring to a boil over med. heat, stirring constantly, till mixture is thickened.
Pour chocolate mix. into dessert cups or large bowl. Chill for at least 1 hour.
Sprinkle w/toasted coconut
Description:
"PUDÍN DE CHOCOLATE Y CANELA"

Serving Ideas : for Brewfest - use 1.7 oz. scoop per serving.
-----

Looking at the 'serving ideas' again, I remember how well this went with a particular beer...I'll have to look for my notes and see which one it was.

Is this available in the states without mailordering?

I buy it at our International Market or those tiny Mexican shops in strip malls.

I'm on the way to the kitchen to make a batch now. Hubby has been a very good boy this week.

If you have a Wal-Mart or other well-stocked grocery store, try looking in the International aisle with all the Mexican/Hispanic stuff. I have a box of Abuelita (made by Nestle) Mexican Chocolate in my pantry right now, that I picked up here in Michigan.

Omg, you're actually trying it... lol! How'd they turn out?

I'll definitely be looking for that Mexican Chocolate next time I'm in the grocery store... can you imagine chocolate chip cookies with this stuff instead of regular chocolate chips?! I've been putting cinnamon in everything chocolate now... I'll probably get sick of it soon... haha!

Hi Tim... we just finished dinner dessert is still an hour or so away.


They smell great!
I'm thinking that the frosting should have been a little thicker? Maybe, it's tooo hot here to firm up the way it should.

I'll let ya know how we like them!

Thanks!!!

The frosting can take varying times to set up- but it never gets completely firm. It stays soft, but solid enough to keep its shape when you cut it. Temperature/humidity could definitely play a role... Lots of my friends like them heated up in the microwave until the icing melts, and then with ice cream... lol! Hope you liked them!
