… Silky Chocolate Good Enough to Bathe In!

Gluten, Dairy, Soy Free Chocolate Pots de Creme

Okay, I strongly believe the phrase, “OMG” is overused, over exaggerated, and completely past its prime, but …

OMG! This is good chocolate! Pots de Creme means pots of cream for the custard-style dessert served in ceramic pots or ramekins. This recipe is right on the mark of that description. These gluten-free, dairy-free Pots de Creme embody the creaminess of the best full-fat cream, the fluffiness of a silken mousse, the richness of the finest of chocolates in the world … all here in each of these little pots of lusciousness. It’s also been accomplished without including soy, which is often relied on to deliver such a silky texture. At the risk of being annoying and repetitive, “OMG!”

And the icing on the cake, as it were, is how easy it is to achieve these results within merely a few minutes. There is no labor of love here. There’s just love – and plenty of time for it with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day because you’ve not exhausted yourself by outdoing yourself with a decadent and incredibly difficult dessert to impress. You’ll just impress.

Gluten, Dairy, Soy Free Chocolate Pots de Creme

I’m showing my love for you by giving you this incredibly delicious, incredibly easy dessert recipe. Happy Valentine’s Day to you … from me!

Just one more thing, okay two … adding a dollop of non-dairy whipped topping, such as Rich’s Rich Whip or homemade Coconut Cream Topping with Orange Essence (orange and chocolate play so well together), will dress this dessert up perfectly. Surprisingly, adding the cream mellows the richness of the chocolate. Go easy on the size of the serving portions. A little goes a long way.

Now go make your sweetie (or yourself) happy!
