Looking for a quick and easy decadent dessert you can make in under 10 minutes? You'll love these tiny Chocolate Pots de Crème with deep, rich chocolate flavor!
Before beginning, place tiny bowls, mugs or ramekins on a large baking sheet. Set aside. Recipe will yield approx. 9 (1/3 cup) servings or 7 (1/2) cup servings.
Put chocolate chips, granulated sugar, vanilla, egg, salt in a blender. If using Grand Marnier (which is optional), add this, as well. Blend these on low for 1 minute, then increase to medium speed for an additional minute. Stop blender, and set aside.
Pour whipping cream into a large microwave safe bowl. Use a large bowl, because the cream will be microwaved, and will rise up some as it heats. (I used a glass bowl so I could see to make sure the whipping cream didn't bubble up and over the top of the bowl). Heat whipping cream in microwave on high power for 2 to 2½ minutes, until the cream is REALLY bubbling (needs to be super hot to cook the egg fully when added to blender).
Place a funnel into the center hole in the top of the blender lid. Place lid onto blender. Turn blender on LOW and blend ingredients already in there for 15 seconds. SLOWLY pour the hot whipping cream through the funnel into the chocolate mixture while mixing on low. Once you've added all the cream, put your hand over the top of the funnel (to cover), and turn the speed up to HIGH. Let the mixture blend on high for two minutes. When done, carefully pour the chocolate, (dividing evenly) into serving bowls.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (preferably more) before serving. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired (Optional) Can be made 2-3 days in advance. Store, covered with plastic wrap in refrigerator.
