NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CUSTARD DAY
National Chocolate Custard Day on May 3rd each year celebrates a delicious pudding-like dessert enjoyed by many.
Pastry chefs and home cooks alike make custards by blending eggs with milk or cream and heating the mixture either on the stove or in the oven. Since custards come in a variety of consistencies, you can choose the one that best fits your dessert preference. For example, they range from a thin liquid-like a crème Anglaise to a firm creme brulee.
Custard is also a versatile dessert. When paired with pastries and baked goods, custard can be layered and piped. It also can be the main filling of a pie or a tart. Substitute a frosting with a thick custard between layers of pound cake or create a delightful parfait with custard, angel food cake, and custard. Pipe custard into dainty cupcakes, add a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkles for flair.
While chocolate custards are delicious on their own, they also fill eclairs, creme puffs, and doughnuts, too
