Rich and luxurious Chocolate Pots de Creme with a silky dollop of Espresso Creme on top! This no-oven pot de creme recipe is the perfect way to end an elegant meal.
In cooking, you can draw inspiration from just about anything. I’ve been eyeing these gorgeous little espresso cups from my favorite dish company, Villeroy & Boch.
Aren’t they fabulous?
…And I thought, nothing could fill them better than a smooth, creamy, chocolatey treat with an ample shot of espresso.
I’m not talking about a little pinch of coffee to accentuate the chocolate. I’m talking espresso in the forefront. And then, of course, more espresso on top. …With a chocolate covered espresso bean as a garnish.
The problem was, these delicate little cups are made of porcelain. I didn’t want to risk placing them in the oven (in a water bath) as you normally would for chocolate pots de creme.
So I decided to work up a stove-top recipe that would thicken and set, like a classic chocolate pot de creme recipe, without the oven time.
These Chocolate Pots de Creme with Espresso Creme topping, are not only a salute to the artistry of the cups they are served in, they are a celebration of rich dark flavors.
The kind of flavors that bring you to a stand still, then have you coming back for more.
