Mmm, chocolate!
I tried to replicate the chocolate dessert from other night.

( Recipe )

I used really good semi-sweet Scharffen Berger chocolate, and it came out wonderful. It was even better the next day, when it had time to settle. Next time, I'm going to try adding a tablespoon of orange or cherry liquor (suggestions for a cherry liquor?) to the hot cream. But it was wonderful just the way it was.

(warning: like any creme brulee, this is an emulsion. If you do not add the hot cream to the egg yolks very slowly, you'll end up with chocolate-covered scrambled eggs. Be careful. It is better to go to slow then too fast.)

Well, I didn't enter the servings right, so that's for the entire batch of 4. You couldn't expect otherwise with the main ingredient being "Heavy Cream". :)

What, you mean I'm not supposed to eat the whole shebang myself?

Dammit, you're no fun anymore! ;)

I didn't eat the whole batch myself! I only ate 3 of the 4 servings!
