Mocha Pots de Crème

Nuvita Biscuits

Serve this rich, pudding-like chocolate dessert to cap off a romantic meal.


  • 3/4 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoon(s) sugar
  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) instant espresso powder
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, for garnish
  • Chocolate shavings (optional), for garnish


  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees F. Put on a kettle of water to boil. In a medium saucepan, bring cream and sugar to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; add chocolate and espresso powder. Let stand 1 minute; stir until chocolate melts and coffee dissolves. Whisk in yolks and vanilla until mixture is blended and smooth.
  2. Pour chocolate mixture into 2 (6-ounce) heart-shaped or round ramekins or custard cups. Place ramekins in an 8-inch-square baking pan. Pour hot water into pan so that it comes halfway up sides of ramekins.
  3. Bake 25 minutes or until almost set in centers. Remove ramekins to a wire rack; cool slightly. Serve warm and soft, or refrigerate up to 1 day. Garnish with dollops of whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if desired.

    i was flipping through a recipe book in the store the other day and saw a recipe for a thick pudding or custard made with ground up espresso beans. i believe it was also chocolate. it required eggs and had whipped cream on top. i think the recipe was called “mocha pots of creme” or something like that because it was served in individual pots or ramekins. can someone point me to a similar recipe online? thanks.

    That’s a link to the menu. I will be going to this restaurant and I know obviously that the calorie content will be high, but I just wanted to know which dessert had the LEAST amount of calories?
