Foodie Friday


Petits Pots de Chocolat for your Valentine
These wonderful little pots of Chocolate are so deliciously sweet just right for that Valentine of yours.  They are a cinch to make but be sure to use good chocolate.  I serve them in red ramekins or little heart shaped bowls.
1 1/2 cups 2% milk
2 cups good quality Bittersweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt

Pour milk in heavy saucepan and heat to boiling point.  Combine remaining ingredients in blender contaier.  Pour in the hot milk, then blend at low speed for 1 minute or until smooth.  pour into 6 custard cups or small footed glasses, then chill for at least 2 hours before serving.  This makes 6 servings.

Note:  If you can get the chopped Bittersweet chocolate from Trader Joe's Pound Plus bar, it is very good, but Ghiradelli chips work just as well.  To garnish, top with whipped cream, mint leaf and a whole raspberry.  Very rich and delicious!!  Enjoy!
Happy Valentines Day to you!

Oh this sounds and looks so much better than that yucky pudding-in-a-box stuff.

Alas, I had to leave Trader Joe's in California, so I'll have to use the Ghiradelli. The goods news is, I don't have a Valentine so there will be more for me. Perhaps I'll share with my sister, but she'll have to wait and see.
