If you love decadent chocolate desserts, you will be in heaven with this Chocolate Pots de Crème Recipe.  These Chocolate Pots are baked in the oven, resulting in a crisp top and a gooey, fudgy decadently rich chocolate center.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tbs semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbs all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tbs brewed coffee (You could also use a dark rum or any flavored liqueur, like chocolate, Raspberry, Baileys or Frangelico. I just used coffee.)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. In a small saucepan, combine cocoa, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in water.
  2. Stir mixture over low heat until no lumps remain. Raise heat to medium and bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 more minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips, coffee and vanilla until smooth.
  4. In a larger bowl, beat eggs until slightly thickened, gradually adding sugar, continuously beating until thick.
  5. Very slowly, adding just a small amount of the warm chocolate at a time, fold the chocolate into the egg mixture.
  6. Coat eight oven safe ramekins or other small serving cups with cooking spray and divide chocolate between the eight cups.
  7. Place ramekins in a baking pan and add about an inch of boiling water to the pan.
  8. Bake uncovered at 350 for about 20 to 25 minutes or until centers are just set.
  9. Serve with a spoonful of whipped cream if desired.
