Pot de Creme

Dan here today.  A few months ago, Beth went through a caramel phase.  I think it was around this time that she decided to make some pot de crème as well.  As you can tell from the name, pot de crème seems to be a French dessert.  I had never heard of it before, but it was a rich chocolate custard type of thing that was served in a ramekin.  The recipe is here, and it looks pretty complicated to make, but it seemed to turn out pretty well.  It was extremely rich but also smooth.  If I mentioned that it had bold flavor, I could almost make this a cigarette ad.  Anyway, that’s about all I have to say on the subject, and most of you are probably getting ready for the weekend and don’t want to read much more, so here are some pretty pictures.

Well hello there, chocolate custard.  You look awfully sweet.  Can I buy you a drink?
