One of the best things about this recipe is the incredible flavor. Somewhere between a pudding and a mousse, this chocolate dessert is velvety smooth, contains just the perfect amount of chocolate flavoring, and pairs perfectly with the whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Everyone who eats it won’t believe that these pots de crème contain only five ingredients!
Another wonderful thing about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare. Perfect for new cooks or anyone who wants a recipe that is guaranteed to turn out perfectly, this recipe basically involves blending a chocolate and heavy whipping cream mixture in a food processor and then letting it set up in the refrigerator. We highly recommend topping this dessert with homemade whipped cream- it, too, is very easy to prepare and requires only a bit of heavy whipping cream and granulated sugar.
Because this recipe requires only five ingredients, it is perfect as a spur-of-the-moment dessert. Had a dessert fall through or find out that the in-laws will be coming over in a matter of hours? Just be sure to keep some heavy whipping cream and chocolate chips on hand- and don’t forget that it takes a few hours to set up.
