Easy chocolate dessert

Easy chocolate dessertHere is a chocolate dessert that I can eat without getting a migraine as long as I make it with a pure good chocolate that I have tested for myself. Remember in moderation once in a while and not when you are having a flare up of arthritis. Now remember everyone is different, use a chocolate that you are o.k. with.

Easy Chocolate dessert

  • Take 240 ml (1 cup) of whipping cream and mix in 15 ml ( 1 tablespoon) of sugar,  5 ml (1 teaspoon ) vanilla  in a  saucepan about 1 liter ( 4 cup) capacity. Heat to the start of boiling. Remove from heat.

Note: This amount  and type of sugar is personal taste adjust for your liking.

  • Take 2 whole large egg yolks and whisk in a bowl until light and creamy, then temper with a little of the hot cream, keep whisking while adding a little more of the hot cream at a time until about 1/3 of the hot cream is in the bowl.
  • Slowly add the warmed egg mixture back into the pot of hot cream mixture whisking as your adding it.
  • Heat back to the start of the boiling point remove from heat.
  • Add 60 grams ( 2 oz ) of high quality dark bittersweet baking chocolate ( at least 70% ) like Z chocolate, Bernard Callebaut, or Cacao Barry and stir until melted and mixed thoroughly.

Note: These are brands that I am o.k. with in small quantities. Use what is good for you.

  • Pour into 4 clear glass serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap to keep it from creating a film cool. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
  • Serve with  a dollop of real whipped cream and fruit ( like strawberries or raspberries ).

This recipe makes 4 small or 2 generous servings. If you want to serve more people just double the ingredients.

Note: This is lighter than a mouse but still rich tasting. Closer to a custard or a pudding.
