Chocolate Chip Pots De Creme

Here is a recipe that is so easy and so delicious. It tastes way too indulgent to be so easy. And it is rich enough that just a little serving goes a long way. Everyone in our family just loves it. (However, a photo doesn't do it justice at all.)

Chocolate Chip Pots De Creme

  • 1 egg
  • 2 T. sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 3/4 c. whole milk or half-and-half
  • 1 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 t. vanilla
1. Stir together the egg, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Whisk in the milk and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened, enough so that the mixture coats the back of a metal spoon.
2. Remove from heat and whisk in the chocolate chips and vanilla. Pour into a serving dish or individual-sized serving dishes and refrigerate at least 6 hours.

**Variations:
  1. Top with whipped cream and/or chocolate shavings.
  2. Replace the vanilla extract with mint, orange or raspberry for a whole new taste.
  3. Replace the chocolate chips with a cup of dark chocolate chunks or pieces.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
