Mother’s Day is coming and I can’t think of a better way to show my mom love than with chocolate. Smooth, creamy, and chocolaty pots de crème with an added boost of dark chocolate peanut butter! I’m pretty sure this will make up for those disastrous moments in the kitchen when I was little.

Ingredients

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pots de Crème ingredients - Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter

2 cups whole milk (or 1 cup each heavy cream and half and half)
2/3 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
1 ounce dark baking chocolate, roughly chopped
2 whole eggs plus 1 egg yolk
1/4 cup cane sugar
hot water

Procedure

1. Preheat oven to 325˚F. Place four 8-ounce ramekins (or six 4-ounce) into a baking dish. Set aside.

2. In a small saucepan heat the milk, peanut butter, and chocolate over low heat until the chocolate has melted. Whisk well until the mixture becomes creamy and a smooth consistency. Do not allow it to boil.

4. Pour evenly into the four ramekins. Pour enough warm water into the bottom of the baking dish to reach about half way up the sides of the ramekins. Carefully place into the oven and bake for 40 minutes or until the custard is set and the middle is still able to move slightly.

    What is the difference between just regular sugar and cane sugar? Is cane sugar readily available at any grocery store?
