Budino

...from Stacey Bruno Migale of Biscotti Bari

Ingredients
10 ounces TCHO Pro “Chocolatey 70%” Dark Chocolate Baking Discs
4 ounces TCHO Pro“Classic 39%” Milk Chocolate Baking Discs
9 egg yolks
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup whole milk
2 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
high quality olive oil
sea salt (medium flake)
1 (5.29 ounce) package Biscotti Bari

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 300o Have 9- by 13-inch metal baking pan prepared for budino mixture and an additional larger pan (roasting pan works well).
2. Melt chocolates in large bowl stainless steel bowl over simmering water.
3. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks and sugar together in large bowl until combined. Warm the milk (in microwave or over the stove); slowly pour hot milk over the yolks, whisking to combine while pouring so you don’t cook the eggs!
4. When chocolate is melted, remove from the stove and allow to cool a little. Add the yolk mixture into the melted chocolate slowly, whisking to combine completely.   Stir in the whipping cream.
5. Pour the mixture into a large baking dish.
6. Cover tightly with foil.
7. Place into a larger pan, filled with water until half way up the sides of the budino-filled pan.
8. Bake for 45-60 minutes.
9. Check to be sure that the edges are set but the middle will still be loose and giggly.
10. Remove from the oven and whisk to homogenize.
11. Pour into a large bowl.
12. Set the bowl of budino over a larger bowl filled with ice to cool; continue to whisk occasionally.
13. Chill budino at least overnight in the refrigerator.
14. Spoon into dessert cups (or pastry shells or premade chocolate molded shells); top with a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of sea salt and a biscotti.
