Chocolate Pot de Crème

Tuesdays with Dorie members were tasked with making Tea and Honey Pots de Crème this week. Since I have not been fond of our latest tea flavored recipes I thought I would make one of Dorie’s Bonne Idee. There were three to choose from; vanilla, chocolate and caramel and I chose chocolate. As expected these were a crowd pleaser. My family seems to have fallen in love with pots de crème and have asked that I make more. I think I will add the vanilla and caramel options to future bakes.

Cocoa Almond Meringues

With the leftover egg whites I had from the pots de crème, I decided to make these cocoa almond meringues from Baking From My Home to Yours (page 155). A combination of typical ingredients; egg whites, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla and atypical ingredients of almond flour, cocoa powder and finely chopped bittersweet chocolate. These light and airy meringues went to my co-workers who are working the front lines while I work from home.

To see what others made head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

    Love the chocolate version and the meringues look delicious. I made the tea and honey version of the pots de creme and enjoyed it.


  3. We have not enjoyed the tea recipes lately either but since I had the tea I went ahead and made them. Turns out they were a hit! Your chocolate ones look delicious and I am sure my family would love them too!


  4. oh, i hadn’t even noticed there are some variation ideas. chocolate always floats my boat, too!
