Pots au Chocolat
Proper grown up food,not sweet and milky, This is a dark bitter chocolate delight!
These Pots au Chocolat need to be made at least five hours in advance,preferably the night before which is what I did.
In a large heavy saucepan, warm 200gms of double cream with 70gms of full fat milk. Melt 200gms of Quality, more than 75% Cocoa, dark chocolate over a bain-marie for around ten minutes.
Transfer the melted chocolate to the pre heated cream and milk mixture and mix together. Simply divide the mixture among Ramekins or as in my case little Expresso cups put in the fridge and leave to chill and set.
I added some Amaretto to the mixture just because I am naughty, but you don't have to, This is a delight, it still has a bitterness but god it is good. We all had a wonderful day, they were not disappointed.
