I really wish there was a zero star category. I tried, people said it was "good, but..." When I mentioned almost 100 cals. PER OUNCE...it was a real turn-off. Understand it's rich & decadent but... SORRY, way too little amounts for way too much fat & calories. If only there were a way to increase the amount & cut the fat & calories, this would be a winner!

These are incredible and fairly easy to make. Mine took a few extra minutes in the oven. If you like dark chocolate these are for you. I think next time I will decrease the cayenne to 1/8 tsp to accommodate milder tastes.

This was not too difficult to make, but is a pretty impressive dessert. The spiciness combined with the chocolate is really neat! They are very rich so keep the portions tiny.

This dessert is amazing. I agree that the amount of cayenne should be decreased or eliminated completely. The rest of the ingredients are amazing!

Complaining about calories in pots de creme is like complaining about red meat in a fillet mignon! They are created to be less filling than a piece of pie, and more indulgent than an after dinner mint. This is a stylish departure from the normal vanilla, chocolate and lemon pots de cremes that I usually make... although the added layers of flavor make it heavier. It is a delightful combination of flavors and a perfect finish to a large, celebratory feast.
