2 cups 1% low-fat chocolate milk
1 (3.5-ounce) bar bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 teaspoons sugar
6 tablespoons frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, thawed

Preheat oven to 300°.

Heat milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat to 180° or until tiny bubbles form around edge (do not boil), stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; add chocolate, stirring occasionally, until chocolate melts. Stir in extracts.

Combine egg yolk and salt in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Gradually add milk mixture to egg mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk. Divide mixture evenly among 6 (4-ounce) ramekins, custard cups, or shallow baking dishes. Place ramekins in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, and add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch.

Bake at 300° for 40 minutes or until center barely moves when ramekin is touched. Remove ramekins from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack. Cover ramekins, and chill at least 4 hours or overnight.

Sift 1 teaspoon sugar evenly over each custard. Holding a kitchen torch about 2 inches from top of each custard, heat sugar, moving torch back and forth, until sugar is completely melted and caramelized. Top with 1 tablespoon whipped topping. Serve custards immediately.
