Quick Rating

Pot de crème is a barely set, creamy French custard served in small dishes. Traditionally it is thickened with eggs and baked in a water bath, but we’ve “cheated” by using Devon custard, eliminating the baking step.

Don’t like chopping chocolate? Break the bar into squares and chop in food processor.
