Aunt Liz Hudnutt’s Crème au Chocolat – WARNING: This is RICH! For serious chocoholics only!
Carefully melt 8 ounces (250 grams) German chocolate* with 1½ Tablespoons water.
Remove from stove.
Beat 1 egg yolk and blend into the chocolate.
Add 2 Tablespoons powdered (icing) sugar.
Beat the whites of 4 large eggs until very stiff. Fold them into the chocolate mixture, then add vanilla essence to taste (½ –1 teaspoon).
Pour into 4-6 individual little pots – or demitasse cups – and chill for several hours.
Garnish at serving time as you like – but less is more!
* Try Schokinag bittersweet chocolate
