Chocolate & Caramel Custard Pots Ingredients:

  • 150g Classic Dark Chocolate
  • 600ml Double Cream
  • 1tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 6 Large Egg Yolks
  • 40g Caster Sugar
  • 75g Carnation Caramel

 

Chocolate & Caramel Custard Pots Method:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
