Rich Chocolate Pots – Recipe

Having watched the all things chocolate episode of the Great British Bake Off I was inspired to give making chocolate pots a bash.  It’s a quick simple recipe that the most novice of cook can execute perfectly.

Ingredients

So here’s what you will need to make your own.

Ingredients (serves 4):

50g of dark chocolate – chopped (I went with 72% cocoa)

50g of milk chocolate – chopped

40g of muscovado sugar

1tsp of vanilla essence

1 egg

1 punnet of raspberries

Icing sugar for dusting

Fresh mint leaves

Cream, Muscovado Sugar & Vanilla Essence

Step 1: place the cream, muscovado sugar and vanilla essence in a pan. Gently bring to the boil while stirring and then remove from the heat.
