Chocolate Pots de Creme

I like to make the world better one Chocolate Pot de Creme at a time...

Because nothing makes you feel better than 5 egg yollks, 12 ounces of chocolate and heavy cream all mixed together and melted for your pleasure.

 When you look at this dessert, you do feel like its illustrating how bad your week was. Sometimes a bad work week can be described no better than a big black hole that has sucked your time and gives nothing back.

That's kind of what this looks like...

But the giving back part....Well that's where they are different.

Here's to hoping we have less bad weeks and more Pots de Creme.

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
5 egg yolks
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 tbsp of cinnamon

Heat the cream and milk together with the cinnamon until almost scalded. Beat egg yolks together and add 1/2 cup of almost scalded milk and whisk together. Then add egg mixture into the milk and heat on medium for 2 minutes.

Chop bittersweet chocolate and add to the milk/egg mixture and melt completely. Remove from the stove and put into individual ramekins. Makes roughly 5-6.

Top with whipped cream to lighten the mood.
