  • 1/2 cup (115 grams) heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (85 grams) semisweet chocolate chips

  • 3 tablespoons (30 grams) sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For Whipped Cream

For Pots de Crème

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees (F). You will need 4 small or 2 large ramekins.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the milk and cream to a boil over medium heat. Add the chocolate and stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole egg, egg yolk, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  • Slowly pour to chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, whisking the whole time. Pass the mixture through a sieve. Pour the crème into the ramekins.
  • Place the ramekins into a deep baking dish and fill with water so it covers at least 3/4 of the way up the ramekins. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the middle of the crème no longer jiggles.
  • Remove the ramekins from the water and allow to cool at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Then chill until ready to serve.

For Whipped Cream:

  • In a small bowl whisk heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.
