Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 Tbsp. white sugar for crust

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 300°F(150°C) and line the bottom of a large baking pan with a damp kitchen cloth.

2

Meanwhile, add the chocolate to a small heatproof bowl. Bring a large pot of water to boil. While water is boiling, combine cream, 1/4 cup sugar and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally about 5 minutes, until steam rises. Pour hot cream over the chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes, then whisk until smooth.

3

In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks and vanilla until smooth. Pour hot chocolate cream into yolks, a little at a time, stirring constantly, until all cream is incorporated. Pour mixture into four 6 oz. ramekins.

4

Place ramekins on towel in a baking dish, and place dish on oven rack. Pour boiling water into dish to halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Cover the whole pan loosely with foil.

5

Bake 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven until custard is just set. Chill ramekins in refrigerator 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

6

Before serving, sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over each custard. Use a kitchen torch or oven broiler to brown top, 2 to 3 minutes.
