Everyone needs an easy to make holiday showstopper, preferably one that you can make ahead of time and bring to room temperature prior to serving. One that won’t take any oven space, or add extra calories to your holiday meals.
Yes, you guessed it: this Chocolate Orange Pot de Creme possesses all those things. It’s made lighter with Born Sweet® Zing™ Baking Blend. Zing™ Baking Blend is made with stevia leaf extract and pure cane sugar and has only 5 calories per serving. The best thing is it’s made with only real ingredients—nothing artificial—it’s a blend of stevia leaf extract and pure cane sugar.
2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons Zing™ Baking Blend
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon orange extract
11 oz. chocolate
3 teaspoons Cointreau (optional)
Place a medium saucepan over a pot of simmering water, combine the first four ingredients and stir constantly until the mixture reaches 160 F, about 8 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and orange extract. Stir in the chocolate and whisk until fully melted and smooth. *Optional: Stir in Cointreau.
Pour pot de creme into ramekins and transfer to a refrigerator to set, about 8 hours or overnight. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with orange zest.
