Nana Recipe Wednesday–Chocolate Pots de Crème

by Sarah on September 15, 2010

Poh duh KREHM.

This refers to the creamy and light custardy dessert as well as the dish it’s served in.

This is Nana’s version, which is bastardized from the traditional French baked custard.  It’s much easier.  And I think it’s damn good.  In fact, it’s one of my favorite desserts.

All you need is chocolate pieces (I use good quality chocolate chips), cream, vanilla, an egg and a dash of salt.

Basically, you heat the cream then throw it all in a blender.  Pour into little pots de creme cups and refrigerate till firm.  Then devour.  As you can see, I was allowed to eat as many as I liked.  Nana and I had an understanding, you see.

  • Put chocolate pieces in blender jar. Pour hot cream over chocolate, cover and run on high speed about 30 seconds, or until chocolate is liquefied. Add egg, salt and vanilla, cover and run again until smooth. Pour into small cups and chill at least 3 hours or until they reach a mousse-like consistency.
