If I had to choose my favorite dessert of all time I would have a hard time choosing between two, the two desserts that are my go to on any dessert menu are crème brule and chocolate pots de crème, if I spot one of these I don’t look ant farther.. Pots de crème are so rich and smooth, they are very decadent but surprisingly easy to make. what’s YOUR go to dessert, I hope this becomes a contender!
13ounces chocolate ( I like to use a combination of semi sweet and milk but you can you can use any type that you enjoy!)
1cup whole milk
1cup heavy cream
1/4cup white sugar
5 egg yolks
Place the chocolate into a heatproof bowl, set aside.
Place the egg yolks into a 2nd heatproof bowl, set aside.
Place the milk, cream and sugar into a pan and bring to a gentle boil.
Temper the egg yolks by gradually whisking in 1/2 of the cream mixture, add the egg mixture to the remaining cream and cook over medium low heat , stirring continuously, until the cream coats the back of a spoon.
Run the custard through a sieve and then pour it over the chocolate, stir until the chocolate is melted.
Place the chocolate mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into 6 4 ounce ramekins and refrigerate for a few hours to set up.
