Droste Chocolate corn starch custard

One of the chocolate recipes included in our nostalgic recipe book is a straightforward recipe for chocolate custard. This custard remains a treat to make yourself.


  • 3/4 l milk
  • 30 g Droste cocoa powder (3 level tablespoons)
  • 60 g sugar
  • 40 g corn starch


Reserve a little bit of the milk and bring the rest to the boil (if desired, you can add some marrow from a vanilla pod). Add the sugar, cocoa powder and corn starch to the reserved milk and mix it well. Add the liquid mixture to the boiling milk while stirring and keep stirring until the mixture is cooked and properly thickened. Allow the custard to cool, but stir occasionally to avoid the formation of a skin on the surface.
