Delish! I make this often and no one ever believes how easy it is! Good enough to impress my mother-in-law as well :)

Craving chocolate? These pots de creme will take care of it! I love the simplicity of this dessert, it was easy to prepare, and the end result was rich and chocolatey with a hint of mocha. I only had Bakers bittersweet chocolate, and I chopped it up fine to ease the melting process. I strained the egg/cream mixture on top of the chocolate and whisked. It melted instantly into a smooth liquid that set nicely in the fridge. They can be made the day before, I would serve them to company in a heartbeat ... definitely mother-in-law approved, as MGPastryChef commented.

The flavor was good but mine turned out soupy and the chocolate didn't melt all the way. It was grainy. Any suggestions?
