Little Pots of Chocolate


Little Pots of Chocolate

This dessert is not overly sweet, especially if you use dark chocolate. It is basically a chocolate custard that turns out silky smooth and utterly delicious. One small pot of this is enough when you weigh up the calories but so delicious that it makes it hard to stop at one! Using milk chocolate makes it more palatable to younger diners but I love using dark as well.
