I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Double Chocolate Tapioca

It's called minute tapioca for a reason.  It only takes a few minutes and you have a creamy dessert. Add chocolate, and well, you add chocolate to just about anything and it makes it better.  Funny thing......everyone here said it tasted like cinnamon, but no cinnamon was added.  Funny.

1/3 cup sugar
3 tbsps minute tapioca
pinch salt
3 cups milk
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsps. cocoa
2 tbsps. mini chocolate chips

Whisk together in a saucepan the sugar, tapioca, salt, milk, egg and cocoa.  Let stand 5 minutes.

Slowly cook over medium heat, whisking constantly.  Once it starts to get warm add the chocolate chips.  Continue cooking for a total of 15-17 minutes.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Let cool 15 minutes, whisking a couple of times.
Pour into serving bowls and cover with a piece of waxed paper to avoid a skin forming on top.

Add a dollop of whipped cream if desired.

Serves 6
