|HEAVEN IN A POT!|
SON #2: MMM-MMM Good! I love all these Whoppers!
Emmie-Lou-Who: Wow, this is really silky!
Well, the photo looked so much yummier on my camera, but here on my computer I see that this pic does not do justice to this morning's Malted Milk Chocolate Pot of Creme. Sorry. But, I promise, this is one of the best, best, best, things I've made over the past few months, including all my holiday baking, and believe me that list includes lots of great goodies!
And, to think that initially I was disappointed we are using bleah milk chocolate...only dark chocolate lovers understand this point of view. However....THIS milk chocolate dessert is totally delish and I will make this one over and over and over, I'm absolutely sure! I wouldn't dream of changing one ingredient even if it was a change for my favorite dark chocolate. No going 1/2 and 1/2...no change.
These pots of cream are truly creamy, smooth, silky, and you'll want to eat all 8, not just one...all 2 1/4 cups of heavy cream; not a healthy start for most New Year's Resolutions lists. I'll also add that even with all the cream and other rich ingredients, these pots of creme are not heavy and they do not have that creamy-buttery residue that can coat the roof of your mouth. They are elegant desserts that could become my perfect Valentine love offering.
This one's a winner! I'm interested to see if any of you used a darker chocolate, or it you subbed out some of the cream for milk? Hope you all have a terrific week!
