Delish! I make this often and no one ever believes how easy it is! Good enough to impress my mother-in-law as well :)
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.
The flavor was good but mine turned out soupy and the chocolate didn't melt all the way. It was grainy. Any suggestions?
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.
