Choc pots

Lily wanted to make an easy chocolate dessert after the failure of chocolate mousse last week.  It wasn't a failure really, but she has decided that she doesn't like chocolate mousse.
Anyway this is 'Jamie Olivers' recipe from the book  'The Naked Chef Returns'.

You will need

  • 300 mls of cream
  • 200g of dark chocolate - Lily used 60% cocoa as she doesn't like it too bitter
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 Tbs of brandy - Lily said she would not put it in next time
  • 20g butter

Heat the cream in a pot not quite till boiling.  Remove and set aside for 1 minute before adding the chocolate, broken up into pieces.  Stir until melted and smooth.  Next add the egg yolks and brandy and stir until smooth.  Allow to cool a little before adding the butter.  Stir till smooth.
Pour into serving pots and place them in the fridge for a few hours until set.

Lily gives it a 7 out 10.
