Chocolate Pots De Crème

Courses: Dessert
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

1/4 cup 59mlLight cream
1   Beaten egg yolk
1 oz 28gGerman cooking chocolate *
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlVanilla
3/4 teaspoon 3.8mlSugar
  Whipped cream - (opt.)
1   Salt

Recipe Instructions

* German Chocolate should be coarsely chopped.

In a small nonmetal bowl stir together light cream, chopped chocolate, sugar and salt. Micro-cook, uncovered, on 100% power about 1 minute or until chocolate is melted, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir about HALF of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolk. Return all to the bowl, mixing well. Micro-cook, uncovered, on 50% power for 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir in vanilla. Pour into pot de crème cup or 6 ounce custard cup. Cover and chill for several hours or until firm. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired.

NOTE: SELECTING THE RIGHT CHOCOLATE: You'll find three basic types of chocolate in the baking supplies department of most supermarkets-- semisweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and sweet chocolate. The semisweet chocolate is made from chocolate that is just slight sweetened with sugar.

Unsweetened chocolate is the original baking or cooking chocolate and has no added flavorings or sugar. And sweet chocolate, such as the German cooking chocolate used in the Chocolate Pots de Crème recipe, is chocolate mixed with sugar and sometimes additional cocoa butter or flavorings.
