Pots de Creme

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Porn, Recipes, Uncategorized

I first saw this recipe in Food Network Magazine a few months ago. Once in a while I get an intense craving for chocolate, and this is the perfect cure – highly chocolatey, super creamy, and so easy to make that even a dolt with egg-based recipes like me can keep from screwing it up.

Pots de Creme

9 ounces high-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
6 large egg yolks
5 tablespoons granulated sugar (add an extra tablespoon if using bitter chocolate)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar

Place the chocolate in a blender. Whisk the milk, 1 cup cream, egg yolks, granulated sugar and salt in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a heatproof spatula, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the spatula and almost boiling, 5 to 6 minutes.

Immediately pour the milk mixture over the chocolate in the blender. Cover and hold the lid with a thick kitchen towel; blend until combined and smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Divide the chocolate mixture among ramekins or small cups and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.

Whip the remaining 1/2 cup cream and the confectioners’ sugar with a mixer or in the blender until soft peaks form. Top the chilled pots de creme with whipped cream.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think of if you added some great
    photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Superb blog!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
