Can a dessert offer an over-the-top chocolate fix while being quick and easy to prepare. The answer is a resounding “yes!” with these quick Blender Amaretto Pots de Crème. The recipe is as simple as pouring steaming hot whipping cream over dark chocolate chips, egg yolks and brown sugar in your blender and then letting the blender do the rest of the work. A pinch of salt and some almond-scented Amaretto bring out the flavor of the chocolate.
While I love the hint of almond from the Amaretto, you can substitute other liqueurs for more flavor options. Crème de Menthe would make these into chocolate-mint treats, and Kahlua’s coffee flavor would add spark to the chocolate.
I like to serve these pots de crème in demitasse or espresso cups, but you also can use small ramekins. A fanned strawberry would make a lovely garnish, but I like to take this one step further and garnish these chocolate puddings with Mocha Java “Cigars,” further enhancing this chocolate experience.
