Now take a saucepan, add the rest of the milk and the chocolate and heat it over medium heat. You can also use solid cocoa powder in tablets. Melt the chocolate first so it is easier to mix the remaining ingredients. Stir it with a wooden spoon or other utensils suitable for high temperatures.
Once the chocolate has melted, add the liquid cream, the sugar and the mix of flour you prepared in step 1. Continue stirring until a thick and creamy dough forms. If you want, you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to flavor your homemade chocolate custard.
When the dough has reached the optimum texture, remove from heat and start filling the molds. If you do not have molds for custard do not worry, you can use glasses or cups. Empty the entire mixture into glasses or molds and allow it to come to room temperature before placing it in the fridge.

If you want, you can add a few chocolate chips over as a decoration, whole cookies or whipped cream.
