Chocolate! Pots de Creme

I apologize. I really do. This is really unfair, but once you try this Pots de Creme you will be ruined. Nothing will taste this good if you love chocolate.

pots de creme
Quick recipe: Before you put a small saucepan on the heat, whisk 3 egg yolks, 4 TB sugar, 1/8 tsp salt. Add 1 1/8 cups cream and 1/8 cup milk. Whisk and place saucepan over med/ med-low heat for 8 minutes, constantly whisking. When it thickens, pour through a mesh strainer over 4 oz. semisweet chocolate in a glass bowl. Let cool a bit. Whisk and pour into 3-4 cups. Let cool about 10 min. Make at least two hours ahead and refrigerate or stick in the freezer (just made)  until you are done making dinner. The custard should be set. If not, wait a few more minutes. If it’s too frozen, leave out for a few minutes. If you are not serving it that night, remove from freezer when set and put in fridge. So, so, so rich.
