Chocolate Pots de Creme

Chocolate Pots de Creme

In keeping with my theme this week of putting an adult twist on popular foods loved by kids, I decided to make a pudding that you will love as much as your little ones do. Warning, do not make a double batch of these ( it makes 4-5 servings), because you will eat them all. Moderation is key! I had to fight my husband and my daughter for my own serving, that is how amazing these are! But try not to eat all 5 servings, at least not in 1 sitting.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook rime: 5 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
4 ounces of 60% bittersweet chocolate–chopped
3 egg yolks
1 cup of heavy cream
1 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of maple syrup or sweetener of your choice
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:
Place the chocolate in a blender. Whisk the milk, 1 cup cream, egg yolks, granulated sugar and salt in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the spoon and almost boiling, 5 to 6 minutes.  Pour the hot mixture over the chocolate in the blender. Put the top on the blender and blend until combined and smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Divide the chocolate mixture among ramekins or small cups. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. Enjoy!
