Mexican Chocolate Pots de Crème

Yield : 6 servings

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

6 large egg yolks

6 ounces Mexican chocolate, preferably Ibarra, finely chopped

6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped, plus shavings for garnish

Unsweetened whipped cream, for serving

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the whole milk with the heavy cream and bring to a simmer over moderately high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks until combined. Slowly whisk in 1/2 cup of the hot milk, then transfer the mixture to the saucepan. Cook the custard over moderate heat, whisking constantly, until it is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Immediately add the finely chopped Mexican and bittersweet chocolate and remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted, then strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a large glass measuring cup or bowl. Pour the chocolate mixture into 6 small bowls and refrigerate until the pots de crème are chilled, at least 6 hours or overnight. Serve the pots de crème with unsweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings. 

MAKE AHEAD: The pots de crème can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
