First of all, here's how you do not pronounce it: 'pawts day creem.'
Here's how you do pronounce pots de creme: 'po duh krehm.'
Or if you want to get really technical, 'po duh k(insert phlegmy, back-of-the-throat crackly French sound)ehm.'
But you really don't need to know how to pronounce it. You just need to eat it" ~Pioneer Woman
Truer words I'm sure have never been spoken :-) This is a rich treat that is a perfect throw-together dessert. Or if you're a choc-oholic like myself, it also tastes delicious for breakfast hehehe
Step 1: Make 10 oz of coffee- 8 oz (about 2 cups) will go into the recipe and 2 you will drink while you cook ;-)
Step 2: In a blender, pulse together 12oz of semisweet chocolate chips, 4 eggs (at room temperature), 2 tsp vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Please don't make fun of me for using my old college blender. I'm pretty sure I haven't used it since....well since college I guess. See, no need for a new one if I use it once every 10 years LOLStep 3: Turn on the blender and slowly pour in the scorching 8 oz (about 2 cups) of freshly brewed coffee. This will cause the chocolate to melt and it will turn into a smooth mixture. Then pour the mixture into small jars and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Step 4: After the chocolate mixture has become firm, whip 1 cup heavy cream and 2 tbs sugar in a mixer at a very high speed for 5-8 minutes. It will slowly turn into a rich whipped cream. Spoon the cream on top of the chocolate mixture and let it sit for at least 1 hour in the fridge. Then dig in!This is such a delicious treat that you will want over and over again. You could also get creative and add mint extract, or use various flavored coffees, such as hazelnut. Don't be scared to get creative!
