Pots De Creme

The best words to describe Pots De Creme is yummy, chocolately goodness.  Oh and did I mention that Pots De Creme is super simple to make?!

Pots De Creme is originally a French dessert which literally means a “pot of cream” or a “pot of custard”.  Once you taste this dish, you will understand why this dish is out of this world.

While Pots De Creme is not a custard, it is just as good, if not better tasting.  It has a looser consistency, almost like liquid chocolate and super delectable.

Pots De Creme is simple and quick to whip up a batch.  You can make these in the morning to eat after dinner, or right before dinner with enough time to chill.  I usually chill these for 2-3 hours before eating, but really, who likes to wait that long?  Sometimes I don’t even wait for them to chill and eat it while it’s nice and warm.

Pots De Creme

I use my Ninja blender to chop the chocolate chips, and blend in my farm fresh eggs, vanilla extract, and salt.  For the first step, I just pulse 6-7 times to roughly chop the chocolate chips.

Using piping hot coffee, pour into the blender.  The hot coffee will melt the chocolate chips the rest of the way.  I usually use the leftover coffee from the morning and heat it in the microwave.

Then I pour in the heavy cream to create a smooth and rich texture.  Once blended, the mixture gets poured into small custard cups or souffle dishes.  This recipe usually makes 4 custard cups, but will make more or less depending on many chocolate chips you use.

I then place plastic wrap over the cups and chill in the refrigerator.  When it’s time for dessert, I add a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!
