Recipe: Chocolate Espresso Pots du Creme

Whilst poking around for a good Thanksgiving treat, we found a delicious recipe for Chocolate Espresso Pots du Creme at Harvest Eating. You can check out their video on how to make the recipe here.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Bittersweet chocolate
  • 6 Egg yolks
  • 3/4 Cups Espresso or dark coffee
  • 1 Cups Organic heavy cream
  • 1/3 Cups Organic heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar

Directions

  1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 300F.
  2. Put chocolate in a heat proof bowl. Bring cream, milk, espresso
    powder (to taste), and a pinch of salt just to a boil in a small heavy
    saucepan, stirring until espresso powder is dissolved, then pour over
    chocolate, whisking until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  3. Whisk together yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt in another bowl,
    then add warm chocolate mixture in a slow stream, whisking constantly.
    Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a 1-quart
  4. Line bottom of a baking pan (large enough to hold ramekins) with a folded
    kitchen towel and arrange ramekins on towel. Poke several holes in a
    large sheet of foil with a skewer. Divide chocolate mixture among
    ramekins, then bake in a hot water bath,(bain marie) pan covered
    tightly with foil, until pots du creme are set around edges but still
    slightly wobbly in centers, 30 to 35 minutes.
  5. Transfer ramekins to a rack to cool completely, uncovered, about 1 hour.
    (Custards will set as they cool.) Chill, covered, until cold, at least
    3 hours.

Enjoy!
