There are only a few ingredients in Chocolate Pot de Creme dessert, and they include semisweet chocolate, whole milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, granulated sugar, salt and confectioners’ sugar.
This recipe goes so quickly; it’s easier if you gather all of your ingredients and have everything ready.
Add your chopped chocolate to your blender.
In a medium size saucepan over medium heat, add your milk, 1 cup of the heavy cream, six egg yolks, granulated sugar, and salt. Whisk constantly for about 5-6 minutes, or until just before the mixture comes to a boil and is slightly thickened. The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon without running off.
Immediately pour the hot mixture into your blender, put the lid on firmly and cover with a thick kitchen towel. Holding the lid down with the towel, blend until all of the chocolate is melted.
Divide the chocolate mixture into six small bowls and place in your refrigerator for 2 hours or more to firm up.
In the meantime, whip up the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream with 1 Tbsp of confectioners sugar. It will take about 2-3 minutes until the mixture forms soft peaks.
To serve, garnish with the whipped cream and if you like, grated chocolate and raspberries.
