Chocolate Soup

This was so good.... like warm Chocolate pudding, but better.

Chocolate Soup
1 C. skim milk
1 C. fat free half and half
1/3 C. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C. bittersweet chocolate chips or 6 oz. bar chocolate, chopped (I used semi sweet)
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. cold water

2 oz. cream cheese
2 heaping Tbsp. marshmallow creme

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together the skim milk, half and half, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract.  Bring the mixture to almost a boil. Turn to low heat, add the chocolate, and whisk until the chocolate starts to melt.  Combine the cornstarch and water; add to soup 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 5-7 minutes. Pour into bowls and dollop with garnish.

Microwave the cream cheese at 10 second intervals or until it can be stirred smooth. Add marshmallow cream and mix well. Dollop in the soup.
