Made in a blender or food processor and refrigerated, this recipe is easy to make and the result can be a beautiful and elegant dessert that will put the perfect cap on a romantic evening! Rich and creamy, the semi sweet chocolate gives just the right amount of bitterness so it doesn’t become overly sweet, keeping that deep dark chocolate flavor that makes this feel very decadent.

What Ingredients are Needed for the Pot de Creme?

  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Rum or Bourbon
  • Chocolate Chips


What is the Difference between Pot de Creme and Pudding?

Pudding is semi sold and is based in milk or cream. Pots de Creme are lighter and similar to a mousse. Try them out side by side and see what you like!

The touch of rum or bourbon adds a depth of flavor that makes the chocolate really pop. If you choose not add in the alcohol, feel free to use vanilla, orange or almond extracts to add in another layer of flavor. You may need a blender or food processor for this one, as it makes it easier to incorporate all the flavors! If you need another dessert with a combo of chocolate and booze, we recommend our Beer Brittle Chocolate Bark!

Why do you need the food processor? Can't you just melt the chocolate and use my hand beater to mix it in? just wondering as I don't have a food processor....thanks, looks amazing to eat and glad you don't have to turn on the oven to make it.

Cathy, you could sure try it! Just make sure to pour it into your bowl slowly, otherwise you may beat the egg too much. Let us know how it goes!

can this be made with heavy cream or does it have to be just whole milk

It could be, it would be a little thicker when it sets up then. If you want you could do a half and half, or half cream and half milk. If you try it with cream, please let us know how it turns out!

Couldn't agree more, chocolate and romance do go hand in hand and a bit of alcohol in it is just what is needed for that kick ;) This looks so delicious, I am definitely trying this next :) xx, Kusum |
