100g pretzels, lightly crushed
45g butter, melted
115g sugar, plus 2 tbsps
45g cocoa powder
2 tbsps cornflour
500ml milk
1 egg
25g plain chocolate chips
Special equipment: 4 (125ml) ramekins

1) Preheat oven to 200C/Gas 6.

2) On a sheet tray, gently toss pretzels, butter and 2 tbsps sugar. Bake until sugar melts and crystallizes on the pretzels, about 10 minutes.

3) Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa, 115g sugar and cornflour. Form a well in the centre and slowly whisk in milk over medium heat. This helps prevent the cornstarch from clumping. Bring mixture to a boil to thicken. Remove from heat. In a small bowl, whisk a little of the milk mixture into the egg to temper. Add egg mixture to the pot of milk.

4) Heat over low until mixture thickens to a pudding-like consistency, about 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in chips until melted and combined well. Pour pudding into ramekins. Chill at least 1 hour. To serve, top with pretzels.
