Do you want a pudding/custardy type dessert or a fruit type dessert or a cake type dessert, etc, etc?
Meanwhile, I thought this one sounded like it might fit - I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds delicious, and has gotten great reviews:
CHOCOLATE RUM DESSERT
This lavish dessert makes a beautiful presentation topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls and served in stemmed glasses. Similar to pudding, this dessert is richer with a delighful rum-laced flavor.
6 ounces semisweet chocolate morsels
3 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons light rum (my note: use less)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (my note: use less)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
whipped cream, for garnish
chocolate curls, for garnish
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over gently boiling water.
Beat the egg yolks until thick and lemon colored; gradually stir in about one quarter of the melted chocolate.
Add the yolks and chocolate to the remaining chocolate in the double boiler, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add the rum, almond extract and nutmeg.
Beat the egg white until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold into the chocolate mixture.
Spoon into stemmed glasses or demitasse cups and chill.
When ready to serve, top with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate curls.
