Pots de Creme

Last week when my issue of Food Network Magazine arrived, I almost died.  It’s The Chocolate Issue.  In fact, this is what I texted to @Erin:

“Oh my chocolate. Look what just came in the mail.”


Admittedly, this was a thoughtless text to send to a friend who’s turning over a new Healthy Living leaf in her life.

She jokingly challenged me to review 50 brownie recipes, but I decided to try Ree Drummond’s recipe for Pots de Creme first.

It was surprisingly easy to make.  The French name gives it a much fancier flair, I guess.  Pots de Creme is a loose French custard (“pot of custard”).

Now I want pots de creme for breakfast and as an afternoon snack and evening dessert.  I don’t think my system can sustain that kind of chocolate input, but I’ll sure try.

Yum.  Seriously, YUM.


More chocolate, please…
