For the pastry

Preheat the oven to 200°C and using a fork, put some wholes all over the surface

Place onto a baking tray, lined with paper and place a second sheet of paper and a second tray to weigh down the pastry. This will stop the pastry from puffing up to much.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

For the custard

Firstly mix the custard powder, egg yolks, sugar and a little milk to a smooth paste.

Place cream, milk, vanilla and butter into a saucepan and bring to the boil.

Pour some of the hot mixture onto the egg yolk mixture.

Return to the hot milk and return to the stove on a low heat.

Cook for around 2 minutes until thickened, stirring at all time.

Take of the heat and mix in the chocolate. Stir until all incorporated.
