Best Creamy Chocolate Pudding

Do you like chocolate, really do ? 
This is a recipe you have to try... 
It's the best chocolate cream I've ever tasted ! 
This recipe is from Cook's Illustrated, they really do have great recipes.

  Preparation    15 minutes top, so quick and easy !

  Tasting    So onctuous and creamy and... perfect, but if you prefer milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate, this recipe is not for you !

  To conclude    I did it 3 times in a row... loved it too much !
