Pots de Crème au Chocolat

So what does one do on a night in with a friend who deserves a delicious chocolaty treat after a long week and only 15 minutes to make it happen?…one makes pots de crème au chocolat à la Pioneer Woman. 

We had a wine and chocolate night, and let me tell you, these little treats were divine. They were really rich, and verrrrry chocolicious. Everyone LOVED them but no one could finish theirs…except me. Wow. Yeah, I went there. No, come on, how could I?! Please, let’s not be silly. But, ya, I’m a little embarrassed, cause that may have actually happened.

ohhhhhh man, just look at that though! Mmmm!

But in all honesty, I think it was a little too rich. Maybe I’m just a mousse kinda girl. And instead of vanilla extract, I used crème de cocoa (chocolate liquor), and didn’t bother with the cream. I think I’ll try it next time with another egg white and a little more crème de cocoa to lighten it a bit, but here’s the original post from The Pioneer Woman.

**And if you’d like a new French sentence…

J’ai mal au cou, mais c’est une belle journée à DC!

My neck is killing me, but it’s a beautiful day in DC!

…truth.
