Milk Chocolate Gianduja Pots de Crème

Milk Chocolate Gianduja Pots de Crème


4 large egg yolks
11/2 cups half-and-half
2/3 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
6 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped


1. Place rack near center of oven and preheat to 325ºF. Place egg yolks in heatproof bowl and whisk until smooth. Combine half-and-half with Nutella in medium saucepan over medium heat until Nutella is melted. Increase heat to medium-high. When mixture begins to boil, pour approximately half of it into egg yolks in slow, steady stream, whisking constantly. Stir mixture back into saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens slightly and finger drawn across custard-coated spoon leaves clean path. Do not boil. Remove pan from heat; stir in chopped milk chocolate until melted and smooth. Strain mixture into heatproof measuring cup.

2. Arrange four 6-ounce ovenproof tea or coffee cups in shallow roasting pan. Pour about 5 liquid ounces of custard into each cup. Place roasting pan in oven; pour enough hot water into pan to come halfway up sides of cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until custard is just a little wobbly in center when cups are jiggled. Do not overbake; custards will set upon cooling.

3. Place wire rack on shelf in refrigerator; arrange cups on rack. Refrigerate 20 minutes; cover cups loosely with plastic wrap. Chill cups completely, about 4-6 hours, before serving.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
