Easy Chocolate Pots de Crème
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  • 6 ounces high quality dark chocolate
  • 2 cups heavy cream (dairy free: use coconut milk)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar (see Note)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. Chop up the chocolate and place it in a blender. Set aside.
  2. Place the cream, egg yolks, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisking to combine the ingredients. Continue to whisk continually until the mixture just starts to bubble and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  3. Pour the hot mixture into the blender with the chocolate and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into individual ramekins and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or until set (I often chill them overnight).
  4. For a softer consistency, let the pots de creme sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top with a sprinkle of grated chocolate or chocolate curls.
If using semi-sweet chocolate no added sugar is necessary.
