Chocolate Soup

Chocolate Soup (chpmnk1015)
(I got it off the food network- spam
on the street.)

4 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
5 tablespoons cornstarch
5 tablespoons cold water
Mini chocolate biscotti, for garnish
Fresh raspberries, for garnish
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together the whole milk,
sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla bean. Bring the mixture almost to a
boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and let it steep for 20
minutes. Strain and return to the pan. (Rinse and dry the vanilla bean and
save it for another use.)

Put the pan on low heat, add the chocolate, and whisk until the chocolate
melts. Combine the cornstarch and water to form a slurry. Add the slurry a
little at a time, whisking constantly, until the soup is thick and smooth.
You will know it is ready when the bubbles are gone and the chocolate has
thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Pour the soup into bowls and garnish with biscotti, raspberries, and mint
