Alix’s Chocolate Love Pots

Serves six (or an indulgent two!)


  • 175 g plain chocolate broken in pieces
  • 250 ml cream
  • 1 egg
  • pinch salt
  • 0.50 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Heat the cream in a jug in a 700w microwave for 1 minute on max.
  2. Break the chocolate into it into as small pieces as possible and leave for 3 minutes to melt.
  3. Give it a stir and if necessary put back into the microwave to melt for another minute to melt all the chocolate.
  4. Pour into a liquidiser, add the egg, salt and vanilla essence and blend quickly.
  5. Alternatively put the mixture in a bowl with the egg and whisk with a hand whisk.
  6. Pour the mixture (it’ll be quite liquid still) into six small (or two large) pots, or glasses.
  7. Chill for several hours or overnight until it is quite firm.
  8. Serve with a smile and enjoy!
