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!

  1. OH. MY. GOODNESS. This sounds Heavenly. I’ve never heard of Pot De Creme until now but I think i’ll be making it soon! I’m a sucker for anything chocolate but this sounds incredible!

  2. I admit that reading all of the amazing Valentine’s Day dessert posts have been making me crazy. I’m just too busy to make anything! I might actually be able to do this one. Thanks.

    1. 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!

      1. Thank you so much for your response — I always have fat free milk and heavy cream in my fridge; so I will do half fat free and half cream and let you know how it comes out! Thanks again!!

  3. 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.
