The chocolate cream pots! Thank you!


They taste better than they look? But they already look so good! And, can I say that I love those kitchen counters? So clean, so well-tiled. Gorgeous. ;)

Grant, you're seriously underestimating my ability to consume chocolate. I'll take the whole ramekin, please.

(They're gorg - and the placecard is darling.)


The whole ramekin? Are you kidding? I'd take all the ramekins! Mine, all mine!!! OK, sorry, it's early in the morning and I just ate a lot of sugar ... but I still want the choccies treats ...


hmmmm.... i wonder if its an Ann(ie) "thing" to need to be constantly entertained??
it would be a handy excuse!
oh, and these look NUMMY!
thanks grant!


Made these last night for a dinner party, and they turned out wonderfully. They make such a nice presentation. My guests actually devoured their entire ramekins!

Thanks for the recipe!


M - yeah I sort of accidentally deleted that post. But now the pots are back with the full recipe.

Luisa - I'm glad you like the counters, but I should point out that they belong to my friend Annie, who kindly lets me cook in her kitchen every so often.

MM - I was just basing my observation on our dining companion Tricia, who found the dessert a little too much. I on the other hand, had no problem finishing mine and hers.

ann - I think they look good too.

hkazi - I'm so glad you made them and loved them. That's fantastic. Thank you.


Hi Grant,

Just wanted to let you know I made this for dessert last night and it was outstanding and easy to make. Everyone loved it, was a big hit -so thanks!


Love the ramekins used. Would you kindly direct me to where I can purchase a set?

The dessert looks devine!




You can purchase those particular ramekins at Crate + Barrel.


I was looking for some little dishes for my pots de creme when I saw your posting- I just made virtually the identical recipe from the new Better Homes and Gardens! IT was much simpler in that you didn't do the last step of baking them, they were simply chilled - they were fantastic and virtually identical to yours- give them a try.

chocolate strawberries

Here's how to make delicious chocolate covered strawberries. First of all ensure that the strawberries you are intending

to use are dry, then allow them to be room temperature warm prior to making them. After the strawberries have been

covered in chocolate, put them in your refrigerator to cool, but do not store them in the fridge. Consume within 1-2



are you sure one should use cold water for the water bath? I have always used hot water. But thats a tiny detail - yours look lovely!
