It has been a while since we’ve seen chocolate on the site. Passing by a few chocolate shops this week, it has been uplifting to see beautiful pots of lily-of-the-valley arrangements, traditionally associated with 1st May to bring good luck. When my friend, Liz Berg told me that she had a recipe for chocolate pots to share for today’s guest post, I was so excited. It was just perfect!
A self-confessed chocoholic, one look at Liz’s blog, “That Skinny Chick Can Bake” and it’s confirmed. She has – to date – 85 recipes for chocolate and more recipes including chocolate chips. That can’t be bad for a skinny chick, n’est-ce pas?
Liz is not just a blogger but a friend to us as well. Injected with humour, through her blog she shares her enthusiasm for cooking and baking in the family (even the dog isn’t left out!) Liz is also so generous with her recipe tips and suggestions, and tempts us with her drool-worthy photos.
I am so proud that she has come today to share her pots of chocolately deliciousness for the egg yolk recipe series. On top of that, they contain not just one or two but SIX egg yolks! Topped with raspberries and white chocolate whipping cream. No more from me – it’s over to Liz.
I was delighted to receive an invitation from Jill to write a guest blog. Jill is such a delightful blogger and friend…her warmth and good humor shine with every word she posts. She’s seen me crank out dessert after dessert, so it was fun to be challenged to dig up a recipe which utilizes a lot of egg yolks.
Chocolate pots de crème are often found on our Christmas menu…and today’s version was for Easter. I live in a household of chocoholics, so every holiday must have a chocolate dessert. You can serve these plain or, for special occasions, top them with a luscious white chocolate whipped cream. If you use smaller dishes as I did, check for doneness early and often by doing a jiggle test…the outer edges should be set, though the middle may still wiggle when you gently tap the ramekin.
These make a stunning dessert…and use up 6 egg yolks. I think I may have to whip up some macarons this week! Hope you all enjoy…thanks for this opportunity, Jill.

Many thanks to you, Liz, for sharing such a scrumptious yolky chocolatey dessert with us. Now you’ve given us plenty of egg whites to put aside for macarons!
