Chocolate Pot De Creme

  • Yield: Makes 12 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 ounces)

  • 7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other flavored liqueur (see above)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, slightly softened

1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the cream to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and egg yolks until chocolate has melted. Stir in Grand Marnier. Set aside until just warm.
