Ingredients

 

Method

  • Add the cream and vanilla to a saucepan and heat on the hob until almost boiling. Whilst the cream heats up, break up the chocolate and add to a heatproof bowl. When ready, pour the cream over the chocolate. Leave to melt a little, then stir to combine, allowing the chocolate to completely melt.
  • Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in another bowl. When combined, pour the egg mixture into the chocolate cream, and then add back into a clean pan. Stir on a low heat until very thick – for around 10-15 minutes.
  • When ready, divide the mixture evenly into 4-6 ramekins. Using a spoon, make a hole in the centre of the chocolate custard, and add a small amount of the caramel. Cover over with some custard, and repeat for the remaining ramekins.
  • When ready, place the pots into the fridge for 3 hours (or overnight). Once cooled, you can enjoy your custard pots with that extra gooey, caramel centre – yum!
