Petits Pots au Chocolat : Pure Chocolate and Nothing Else

At home, I found that recipe hand written on a sticky post-it forgotten or lost in my drawer under a pile of invoices and redtape. I have tried it : this is pure chocolate velvet...
Here is this simple recipe.

Ingredients (yield =  8 to 10 pots)
  • 500 ml milk
  • 150 gr sugar
  • 250 gr dark chocolate (>60%)
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 egg white
  • Preheat convention oven at 300 F. (150 C.) Add 25 degrees if desk oven. Boil enough water for the bain marie
  • Boil milk + sugar
  • Put the chocolate chips in a food processor and pour the milk on it. Mix on high speed
  • Let it cool down and pour on the eggs (W+Y) and whisk
  • Pour in ramequins or small canning jars
  • Bake for 15~20 mn in a bain marie (the middle of the cream shoud still slightly jiggle)
  • Cool down and refrigerate for a few hours
