Dash of salt

1/2 cup evaporated fat-free milk

1 cup skim milk

2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup raspberries

Whisk together the eggs, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl. Heat milks in a medium saucepan over low heat, and bring to a simmer (not boil). Remove pan from heat and add bittersweet chocolate to warm milk, stirring until chocolate melts. Gradually stir about one-quarter of warm chocolate mixture into egg mixture. Once combined, slowly add the rest of the egg mixture to the remaining chocolate, stirring constantly. Cook the pudding mixture over medium heat about 5 minutes, or until the mixture is thick and creamy, stirring constantly. Pour pudding into four small bowls, cover with plastic wrap and chill. To serve, remove plastic wrap and top with raspberries.
