Chocolate Pots de Creme

Chocolate Pots de Creme
I made a dish years ago that was very similar to these from the first ever Next Food Network Stars, Dan and Steve. They tasted like a chocolate truffle and were the perfect end to a meal. These chocolate pots de crème from King Arthur Flour are easy to make and have a similar chocolate truffle flavor.   They are rich, decadent and full of chocolate flavor.  A little goes a long way, so china coffee cups are the perfect serving vessel.  These are fantastic dessert to serve for a crowd because you just pull them out of the fridge and toss a couple berries on top, they look impressive, but they are easy to serve. 
Chocolate Pots de Creme

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Place the chocolate chips, salt, and sugar in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add the eggs and pulse just until the mixture is smooth.

Heat the cream in a two cup measure in the microwave until bubbles just begin to form, about 4 minutes. Turn on the processor, slowly add the cream and vanilla. Scrape down the sides of the container if necessary. Divide into 8 individual serving cups. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

Serve with fresh berries or whipped cream.
