Delish! I make this often and no one ever believes how easy it is! Good enough to impress my mother-in-law as well :)

The flavor was good but mine turned out soupy and the chocolate didn't melt all the way. It was grainy. Any suggestions?

Craving chocolate? These pots de creme will take care of it! I love the simplicity of this dessert, it was easy to prepare, and the end result was rich and chocolatey with a hint of mocha. I only had Bakers bittersweet chocolate, and I chopped it up fine to ease the melting process. I strained the egg/cream mixture on top of the chocolate and whisked. It melted instantly into a smooth liquid that set nicely in the fridge. They can be made the day before, I would serve them to company in a heartbeat ... definitely mother-in-law approved, as MGPastryChef commented.

I do a lot of French cooking and have been looking for a good Pots de Creme recipe. This one is GREAT! Instead of making espresso, I made a very strong cup of instant coffee which worked fine. I followed the advice above and strained the mixture directly over the chocolate and then immediately whisked. HINT Use a mixing bowl with a pouring spout! Result was very smooth and set perfectly. I used expresso cups & saucers for my presentation. BIG HIT! Such a great make ahead dessert. Thanks for a keeper!

I thought the flavor was phenomenal, and it was so easy to prepare, but mine turned out soupy as well, even after sticking it in the freezer for a little while.
