Delicious! I followed ingredients and directions exactly. Was really yummy for a book club luncheon served with whipped cream. There was no worry about a skin forming on top either, I just put cling wrap over the top of the demitasse cup (not touching the surface of the creme), and the top of the creme was perfect. Wil definitely make again.

OMG! These are wonderful. I served them at a ladies luncheon and everyone loved them. I used 90% Lindt dark chocolate (Wal-mart). For flowers, I used fresh mint leaves with a raspberry.

All my guests loved this dessert. I usually cut down on sugar in all my recipes and only used a little over a ¼ c. brown sugar in this one. Added sugar and vanilla to the whip cream. With a little less sugar the chocolate had a nice tang instead of the sweetness of chocolate pudding. Skipped the flower and just used a mint leaf. If I had had espresso cups, I would have used them. Failing that I used teacups. Because so many people are focused on eating "slimmer" and "healthier," I was afraid the teacups were too big for such a rich dessert. Didn't seem to bother a soul. All my guests finished their dessert.
