[CnD] Chocolate pudding variant

Making pudding and/or pie filling and sauces was easier using a double 
boiler. It used a larger pan for the base. That would hold the boiling 
water. The top pan would hold your ingredients. The premise is the top pan 
won't get too hot so your more delicate ingredients would not scorch.
Hope I'm making sense,
