As if we all need another reason to eat chocolate…a little known Foodie “holiday” gives us one more reason. Today is National White Chocolate Day. In honor of this sweet day we give a recipe that is sure to leave a great taste in your mouth. Celebrate with this delish dessert and forget about your waist line for one day.
5 large Egg yolks
1/2 cup Sugar
2 cups Whipping cream
3 ounces White imported chocolate — finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar
HOW TO MAKE IT
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 300F. Whisk egg yolks and 1/4 cup sugar in medium bowl. Bring cream and remaining 1/4 cup sugar to simmer in heavy medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Gradually add chopped chocolate to cream mixture and whisk until smooth.
Gradually whisk hot chocolate mixture into yolk mixture. Mix in vanilla. Ladle custard into four 10-ounce custard cups (or creme brulee cups). Place cups in large baking pan. Add enough hot water to pan to come halfway up sides of cups.
Bake until custards are set in center, about 1 hour. Remove custards from water and cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Preheat broiler. Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon sugar over each custard. Broil until sugar caramelizes, watching carefully, about 2 minutes. Serve hot, or refrigerate up to 1 hour and serve cold.
Dip your spoon in and enjoy the goodness.
