Chocolate Pots De Creme

Chocolate pot de creme

Where do I start with this?  What is a Pots de Creme?  It is a french dessert, that is a custard but I would describe it as “Ultimate Gourmet Pudding”.  It can be made in many flavors but I have only had chocolate and that is so damn amazing, I have decided to just stick with that!

I always double this recipe.  They will stay good in the fridge for up to 3 days if they aren’t eaten sooner.  Brian keeps a working inventory when I make these to make sure he gets his fair share, he is crazy for them!
