Chocolate Pots de Creme

I recently found a great, easy to make dessert recipe on the blog Closet Cooking. I made a few small changes to the recipe and the cooking method to make it even easier for myself, and it came out absolutely delicious and very rich. I will definitely be making this again, and I may be trying his Maple Pots de Creme recipe some time soon. Thanks, Kevin!


Here is the recipe with my modifications, but you can see the original recipe here.
