Cookin’ Louisiane – Chocolate Pot de Creme

Cookin Louisiane

Ingredients

● 10 ounces high-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped
● 1 1/2 cups whole milk
● 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
● 6 large egg yolks
● 6 Tablespoons granulated sugar (add an extra tablespoon if using bitter chocolate)
● 1/4 teaspoon salt
● 1 Tablespoon confectioners’ sugar

Instructions:

  • 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 with a heatproof spatula, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the spatula and almost boiling, 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Immediately pour the milk mixture over the chocolate in the blender. Cover and hold the lid with a thick kitchen towel; 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 and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
  • Whip the remaining 1/2 cup cream and the confectioners’ sugar with a mixer or in the blender
