These have to be the greatest emergency dinner party desserts EVER! They literally take 10 minutes to make then just a few hours to set in the fridge. So you can get on with everything else and tick dessert off the list, without any need to worry. These Salted Caramel Chocolate Pots may be small but don’t let that deceive you! These are rich little puds, you really don’t need a lot to be happily satisfied!
Here is what you will need to serve 6.
(Recipe adapted from Amuse Your Bouche)
- 300g Milk Chocolate
- 50g Unsalted Butter, cubed
- 300ml Double Cream
- Approx 200g Caramel Sauce (6 tbsp)
- Sea Salt
Optional Toppings *
- Crumbled shortbread biscuit
- Crumbled Cadbury’s Flake
- Whipped Cream
- 6 Small Ramekins/Serving Bowls
*If you like you can top the desserts with 1, 2 or all of these! Or just keep them plain.
Break the chocolate into a medium sized saucepan along with the cubed butter. Melt gently over a very low heat. (Don’t overheat it or you will land yourself in a whole heap of chocolatey mess!)
Pour in the cream and stir well until everything is blended together & you have a nice smooth chocolate ganache.
Meanwhile, mix a little salt at a time into the caramel. Keep going until it’s to your taste.
Spoon 1 tbsp of the salted caramel into the bottom of each ramekin.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the top of the caramel.
Place into the fridge to set for 2-3 hours. Before serving, you could sprinkle the top with some crumbled biscuit, crumbled Cadbury’s Flake or even some whipped cream. Or all of them! You can of course leave them plain and enjoy them in all their simplistic glory.
Store these little delights in the fridge and consume within 2 days.
Did’t I tell you these were ridiculously easy & quick to make?! You could so easily mix up the flavours too. You could skip the caramel, add some orange extract to the chocolate & top with candied orange for a Chocolate Orange version. You could turn it into a Twix Pudding Pot by adding a biscuit base layer. You could even do half white chocolate & half dark chocolate and swirl them in the ramekins to make a really pretty dessert. The possibilities are endless!
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
