So I was fooling around with a candy recipe that had me reduce some cream by quite a bit. It started looking like a pudding base almost, so I took a tiny bit out and let it cool; it was delicious, and very pudding-like.
After that, I decided to experiment and basically just simmered some cream, cocoa powder, sugar, and a touch of cinnamon. It came out delicious, but I have no idea what I just made.
I'm sure something like this exists, but I'm not familiar with any recipes that use this method. Anyone have any ideas?
Until I know better, I'm just gonna call it a velvet cream pudding, cause it is smooth and rich as all get out. Damn tasty.
