Baked Chocolate Cream a.k.a. Baked Chocolate Dreams

 

There is nothing low cal or healthy about this dessert…at all!  Heavy cream and rich chocolate are the main and almost only ingredients.  This is creamer than a mousse, thicker than a pudding and has a slightly crunchy chocolate crust on top.  It’s more like a French Pot au Chcolat but without a lot of faffing around.  This is dead easy and takes about 15 minutes tops to prepare.  It’s a huge family favorite around here.

Serves 8

Ingredients

12 oz bag good quality bittersweet chocolate pieces (like Ghirardelli)

1 ½ cup heavy cream

1-teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

½ cup sugar

Pinch of salt

8 ramekins

 

Preheat oven to 300°F.  Place rack in the middle of the oven.

Heat cream and chocolate in a medium non-stick saucepan over low heat just until the chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Stir occasionally.  Let cool for 5 minutes

Whisk eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla in a medium bowl until thick and creamy.  Add cooled chocolate mixture and whisk until combined

Ladle chocolate into ramekins. Bake in a Bain Marie (water bath) for 40 minutes until set.  The surface will puff up in the oven and make a delicious crunchy top to the smooth thick chocolate underneath.  Let cool, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.  Serve slightly chilled.

 

It’s All Delicious Notes:  This recipe can easily be cut in half.  Also, you could add Frambroise, Grand Marnier or another liqueur of your choice if desired
