Chocolate Pots De Crème

Most of us know that chocolate = love and happiness. So this month we want you to be extra happy with this amazing Valentine’s Day recipe that our Chef fell in love with from a 1983 Betty Crocker Cookbook.

It’s yummy and well worth it! Buen Provecho!


Chocolate Pots De Crème 

Yields: 4 cups

Time: 1 Hour

 

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Belizean White Rum

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat chocolate chips and half and half in a double boiler until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth (an example of a double boiler is a 10 inch metal or glass mixing bowl placed over a pot of simmering water).
  3. Cool mixture slightly.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat remaining ingredients.
  5. Gradually stir into chocolate mixture.
  6. Pour into 4 ungreased 6 ounce custard cups.
  7. Place filled cups into a 13" X 9" baking pan. Add boiling water to the pan so water rises within a 1/2 inch of the top of the cups.
  8. Bake 20 minutes. Then cool slightly.
  9. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. Serve with sliced strawberries or berries on top or simply dust with cocoa and powdered sugar.
