five minutes pots de creme, if that
i saw this pots de creme recipe posted over at this fun website. it is apparently a rachel ray recipe, whom i am not a fan, but it called my name regardless. the recipe itself is ridiculously easy, but i mean come on, isn't that the cutest little cup pictured? i want one, or two, what the heck, give me a set of six. i have no shame. i just knew i had to give this baby a whirl. i mean it is made in the blender in about five minutes. holy cow! what more could you ask for? well, turns out it is dang tasty. frankly, i was surprised just how creamy and chocolaty it was. you should serve in small amounts, but i supersized mine of course, so i didn't get quite as many serving as i should. oh well, i also whipped up a little bit of whipping cream to plop on top. i think it will help to cut some of the richness from the dark chocolate. make sure it refrigerates for several hours to get firm. i will make these little gems again, great for a chocolate fix. enjoy!
p.s.-i used 2% milk, one tablespoon of dark rum and hershey special dark chocolate chips. i would use the full dose of rum next time or switch up to some orange liquer. mmmmmm.......
