  • Chcolate Cups...Oprah Show with Rachel Ray

    This looked soo good and soo easy! Oprah (who said she wasn't a "sweets" person) loved it.

    Chocolate Cups with Whipped Cream
    Serves 4

    This recipe is a no-bake pot de crème—no kidding!

    INGREDIENTS
    2/3 cup whole milk
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp. sugar
    Pinch salt
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2 Tbsp. hazelnut liqueur or dark rum
    4 demitasse cups
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 Tbsp. sugar
    Mint sprigs, for garnish, optional

    When planning your menu, make this dessert first to allow these chocolate cups to set and chill.

    Heat milk in a small pan over moderate heat until it comes to a boil. In blender or food processor combine egg, sugar, a pinch of salt, semisweet chips and liqueur.
    Run processor or turn on blender to low setting. Pour in boiling milk in a slow stream. The hot milk will cook the egg and melt the chocolate. Process or blend 1 minute, until smooth.
    Spoon chocolate into 4 demitasse cups and chill. After dinner, beat cream until soft peaks form. Add a little sugar and beat to combine. Top the chocolate cups with a dollop of cream and garnish each cup with mint sprigs.
    Place cups on saucers and serve with demitasse spoons. If you use teacups, this recipe will yield 2 cups, rather than 4.

    I made this Tuesday night..very rich when you want that chocolate fix.
