Pinned It, Made It: Pots de Creme

This is a first for me, friends! My very own linky party! I do hope you'll join in. I want to know which recipes, projects, and ideas you've pinned have been winners. (And you don't have to be on Pinterest to do this, by the way.) Even if they're not winners, share what you've tried--you may save me a few lost hours.

A week or so ago, I pinned this from The Pioneer Woman:

What can I say? I have a weakness for chocolate. And whipped cream. And pretty much anything served up in a mason jar.

I tried it, and it was simply delicious, emphasis on the simply part. And when you tell someone you're serving Pots de Creme (pronounced Po de Krehm), you're already a star.

A rich, moussey, puddingy chocolate treat. And so so so easy. You basically blend up chocolate chips and eggs, add super hot coffee and any flavorings you like (vanilla, flavored liqueurs, etc.). Blend until very smooth, pour into serving dishes, let chill and firm (I found it was best after setting overnight), and top with homemade whipped cream. My only tip is that if you're not a die-hard dark chocolate chip lover, use use milk chocolate chips, or at least do half and half. The dark was really, really rich. It became even more heavenly by topping it with some homemade caramel.

Level of Difficulty: Easy, easy, easy!
Worth it? Yes, definitely! The only downside may be that it can be too rich, and some people may wince at using raw eggs. However, the whipped cream balances out the richness wonderfully, and PW does promise that the super hot acidic coffee cooks the eggs a bit.

Care to join in? Please do with either a new "tried it" or something you've done awhile ago and is worth sharing. Simply write your post on your blog and copy the "Pinned It, Made It" code found on the left sidebar into your post. In your post, be sure and tell us how difficult it is and if you'd recommend it. Then once you publish, use the form below to link up. Make the recipe or project or whatever you are sharing the link title.

If you do link, please visit the posts of others who have linked-up!
