Chocolate Lover’s Dream: Guittard Chocolate Pots De Creme

Friday, May 29th, 2015

One day while nibbling on our favorite chocolate chips (bad habit), we noticed three words of a recipe on the back of the package. Chocolate. Milk. Butter. SOLD!

This dessert is perfect for a summer’s eve. Large party or intimate gathering, it will not disappoint. Quick, decadent and divine….

Remove from heat, add chocolate chips and stir until melted.
Pour into tiny glasses and refrigerate for 2 hours prior to serving.
