The Ultimate Chocolate Pots de Crème Recipe


There is nothing more chocolatey than these cute and delicious chocolate pots de crème. So easy and simple to prepare and beautiful for serving! Perfect dessert! Here is the recipe:

Servings 6 to 8

Ingredients:

For the pots de crème:

  • 255 grams (9 oz.) high-quality milk chocolate, chopped
  • 300 ml (1 ¼ cups) heavy cream, divided
  • 300 ml (1 ¼ cups) whole milk
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 70 grams (1/3 cup) granulated sugar
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the topping (optional):

  • Whipped cream or whipped topping
  • berries or lightly salted almonds or pistachios
  • shaved dark chocolate

 

Instructions:

  • In a blender, apply the chocolate; set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, pour the milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, sugar, and salt and whisk to combine. Then, set the saucepan over medium heat and cook. Stir constantly using a wooden spatula, scraping along sides and bottom of the pan, until you get a slightly thick mixture that nearly boils, around 7-9 minutes.
  • Next, remove from heat and immediately add in vanilla extract, combine and pour it through a fine mesh strainer into the blender (where we put the chopped chocolate before).
  • Allow sitting for 2 minutes so the chocolate can melt. Then, using a lid, cover the blender and hold a thick kitchen towel over lid, pulse mixture on low until well incorporated.
  • Slightly tap blender against the counter a few times just to remove any large air bubbles (you do not want to get rid of all of the bubbles only some of the big ones).
  • Split mixture among 6 to 8 serving dessert cups or ramekins. Place in the fridge to set, around 2 to 3 hours.
  • Before serving, top with whipped cream/topping, shaved chocolate, some nuts and/or fresh raspberries (optional).

Enjoy!
