Pots de Crème: Way more than just pudding

Email News Alerts

A slight resemblance to custard, but so creamy and smooth it could be mousse. Only the texture is a bit more dense than mousse. These little cups of silky smooth lusciousness are called Pots de Crème in French. It's perfectly all right, though, to just call them little pots of chocolate with a billowy cream topping. Or just call it chocolate pudding. Once you taste it, though, you'll want to call it Pots de Crème.
