Salted dark chocolate pots

Chocolate: who doesn’t love it?

And salted chocolate? even better, so delicious and amazingly velvety.

Here’s a wonderful recipe, by KJ, of salted dark chocolate pots de crème. Hope you enjoy it!

INGREDIENTS: 225gr 75% dark chocolate (tablet); 6 tablespoons granulated sugar; 6 large egg yolks; 1½ cups heavy cream; ¾ cup whole milk; ¼ teaspoon table salt; 1 teaspoon vanilla; maldon salt, for sprinkling


Chop the dark chocolate and place in a medium, heat-proof bowl. Set a fine mesh sieve over the top and aside.

In a separate medium bowl, whisk the sugar and egg yolks until pale. Add the heavy cream, whole milk and salt and stir to combine.

Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken and has reached 175F on a kitchen thermometer, about 8-10 minutes.

Stir in the vanilla then pour the custard through the strainer over the chocolate. Let sit for 1-2 minutes to melt the chocolate then stir until smooth.

Divide the mixture evenly among 8, 5-oz ramekins. Gently rap the ramekins on the counter to remove any air bubbles.

Let stand at room temperature until cooled, then transfer to the refrigerator to thoroughly chill, at least 4 hours, up to 72.

To serve, sprinkle with maldon salt and top with a touch of unsweetened whipped cream.

Soooo delicious
