Chocolate pots

>> Tuesday, February 23, 2010

So, I was craving some chocolate and what better way to enjoy it than in an adorable teacup! Chocolate pots are so easy to make and I would say not all that bad for you.  You see, I just break down the ingredients and think to myself, "hey, that's not too bad for me".

All you need is:

2/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups milk
4 large egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and salt.  Add 1/3 cup of the milk, stirring to form a smooth paste.  Whisk int he egg yolks and the remaining milk.

Cook the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until thickened 12 - 15 minutes (do not let this boil). Remove from the heat.

Add the vanilla and chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.  Pour into eight 4-ounce ramekins, glasses or teacups. Refridgerate, covered, until chilled, at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.  Sprinkle with the cocoa powder before serving.

This really is a cute idea with the teacup. I've been using cups and mugs more and more for serving things like soup these days too. It's fun, and better protion sizes :)

Oh, yes, I agree with the teacup idea. It can difficult when a recipe calls for you to use a particular dish or plate to serve something in. I mean, I have limited room for such things in my kitchen and now I'll to try this idea with some of the recipes I've rejected in the past.

Thanks for the idea!
