Pots Au Chocolate

If you have a chocolate craving, this will cure it in no time. And there is virtually zero baking — in fact, it can be made in the microwave. The longest step is waiting (with bated breath) for it to chill and set up before it can be served, but don’t be above tasting a few bites while still in its liquid form!

serves 4
1¼ cups light cream heated in microwave or stove until skin forms on top
2 egg yolks
2 to 3 tablespoons of liqueur, such as Amaretto or Kahlua
1 cup chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate, but for a richer dessert you can use semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips)

Combine chocolate, egg yolks and liqueur in a blender until smooth. Add warm cream and mix until blended. Pour into individual bowls or ramekins and chill for three to four hours. Serve with whipped cream or with melted caramel and a sprinkle of salt on top for a salted caramel variety.
