Chocolate Pots de Creme

Chocolate!  Yay!

When I saw the March picks for the Tuesdays with Dorie crowd I was amazed to see that I have already baked 4 out of the 5 recipes!  I'm definitely closing in on baking everything in the book!

The March recipe that I had not yet made was this week's choice by Christine of Black Cat Cooking, Chocolate Pots de Creme.  As it happens, we are still in the midst of our once-a-week soup nights with about 20 guests each Monday night.  It has been a great excuse to bake, but 8 little ramekins of luscious chocolate just didn't seem enough.  I made them anyway--first 7 guests will get them (I'm having mine right now!).

Ingredients ready
Ramekins ready to take a bath

Ganache ready, eggs whisked, milk/cream coming to a boil

Happy ramekins ready to go into the oven

The Pots de Creme were easy and fun to make.  I love shaving chocolate from a big hunk of Callebaut Bitter Sweet, whisking eggs is also fun, and I'm still amazed at even the thought of boiling cream.

But in addition to the tasty Pots de Creme, I also made Dorie's Peanut Butter Torte and her Sugar cookies.  Wonderful!

  1. i missed making the pb torte before, and your pic makes me want to get right to making up for lost time :)
    nice job this week with all your bakes!

  2. I loved that PB torte when we made it. Looks like you baked a lot this week. The pots look excellent.

  3. Pretty as the blue ramekins are, they were too big. Couples shared a dish, because, really, two bites of this is all you need.

  4. Yum!! Both of your desserts look delicious!! :)

  5. Looks like a dessert feast. Nicely done!
