If you are looking for the world’s easiest dessert AND that is sure to impress anyone who has the pleasure of trying it, look no further than this extremely easy recipe for chocolate pots de crème.

No-bake, no-cook, made in a blender in five minutes. Yet elegant and extraordinary. The desserts gods are smiling down with this recipe.

What Are Chocolate Pots de Crème

Pots de crème are French desserts that mean ‘pot of custard’ or ‘pot of cream’. And in this case, it’s a literal pot of chocolate cream, and oh so good.

They are rich, decadent, and a chocolate lover’s dream. The texture is more dense than chocolate mousse or chocolate pudding, both of which are definitely lighter and airier. We are talking the texture and richness of Nutella here.

Although only two pots are shown in the photos, you could definitely stretch it and make four. I made two because it’s easier to photograph things that are nice and full but in reality, four servings is more appropriate than two.

Even my preteen daughter who has an incredible appetite, especially upon coming home from sports practice, said that one pot is a lot of chocolate and very rich. She ate one and then proceeded to take a nap.

How To Make Easy Chocolate Pots de Crème

I have seen recipes where eggs are involved and you use boiling cream to cook the eggs but that seems more complicated than necessary.

The operative word here is easy.

Simply place chocolate chips, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a high speed blender and blend until you have fine chocolate dust.

Heat a cup of heavy cream in the microwave until it’s just boiling, pour it over the chocolate dust, blend momentarily to incorporate, pour into ramekins (mismatched bowls would be cute and so would small glass mason jars) and refrigerate until set. Top with whipped cream or whipped topping and serve.

Excellent Make-In-Advance Dessert

Make them in advance to serve as an elegant desserts after a  dinner party or event you’re hosting.

They are the perfect make-ahead dessert that can hang out in the fridge for days before serving them. When you’re having a dinner party or entertaining, anything you can do in advance is always appreciated.

And definitely make these pots for that special someone for Valentine’s Day and never need to buy a box of chocolates again. These are so much better.

  1. Is it possible to get the same consistency (though, obviously, different taste) with coconut milk? Or maybe I would need to use the thick part (i.e. the coconut cream)? Or maybe it wouldn’t work altogether?

  2. Wow!! I would have thought this would have taken quite a bit more time! just a few ingredients and a short time in the microwave and blender for something that looks so decadent! The hard part would be waiting for it to set up in the fridge!

  3. Can you use food processor instead of blender?

  4. This looks to die for delicious. I want to be fat and eat these!!!! W

  5. Can’t wait to try. Problem is my bp goes up with sodium n they say cancer cells thrive on sugar. Oh my…….
    But i still want to try without salt n use but of raw honey.

  6. I would like to try this but don’t have a blender.If anyone tries it with a Cuisinart processor before I do, please report results. I do have a spice grinder. It is small but I might try that. I have accumulated quite a few containers from purchasing Oui, the French-style yogurt. I’m thinking they would be perfect size for for 4 servings.

  7. I could not believe how easy these were! It took longer to clean the blender than it actually took to make them. They were amazingly good – very rich and chocolately! I really like that I could do them ahead of time. Definitely will do again.

  8. Can I keep them in individual mason jars with lids? Will they last a few days that way?
