Pot de creme aka sin in a cup

Be ready to have your mind blown. Away. Imagine the best dessert you’ve ever had, multiply that by 27 and minimize the ingredients to 4 simple ingredients that you may have in your cupboard right now. So go look cuz you’re gonna want some of this, now. May I introduce you to my new favorite thing in the world (beside my boyfriend and puppies), pot de creme.


4 oz good semisweet chocolate (Ghiradelli works nicely)

1 c. heavy cream (bye bye abs)

3 T plus 1 t sugar

1/2 t vanilla


Finely chop chocolate and put in a large bowl. Heat cream, sugar, and vanilla on stove just until it boils. Pour over chocolate and let sit for a minute. Whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Pour into 4 small dishes or coffee cups. Chill for 5-6 hours until firm. If you have extra cream, pour into a bowl and whip until firm. Stir in 1 t vanilla and 1 T sugar. Top pot de creme and for a fancy flare sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder on top. Enjoy!

Caution: May induce extreme salivation.

Please don’t try to eat your computer screen. If I can make these so can you. These are a simple treat for get-togethers or for a date night. Enjoy and send one to me when you make them!
