Two Ingredient Chocolate Pots


Although lately my chocolate needs are being satisfied, delightfully, by cocoa laced smoothies disguised as Jaffa Cake or gloriously laden with peanut butter and banana, there is still a much required place in my recipe repertoire for a rich and creamy, dark and delicious pot of smooth chocolate ganache.


These pots require just two, basic, simple ingredients to be transformed into a heavenly dessert in minutes. I love simplicity, especially the kind that your dinner guests will never suspect took such little effort. This is a recipe which is your secret weapon to last minute menu plans or when you just need to indulge.


This is a simple canvas that can be transformed in many ways, or simply left alone in it’s elegant allure.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 250ml/1 cup coconut cream (from a carton or a chilled can of full fat coconut milk – solid cream only)
  • 100g dark non dairy chocolate (orΒ raw chocolate)
  • Optional liquid stevia to taste, use NuNaturals flavoured stevia extracts for different flavour profiles, I recommend vanilla, orange, mint or cherry vanilla for a black forest.
  • Optional flavourings – nuts, nut butters, natural extracts, orange zest, dried fruit, chocolate chips or shavings, crumble, spices.


  1. Simply melt together the chocolate and coconut cream until smooth, add and flavourings and add stevia to taste.
  2. Divide between 4 small ramekins, adorn with any chosen toppings or alternatively chill in a large bowl and serve quenelles over a crumble or finely chopped nuts.
  3. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

    I’ve been using avocado and chocolate to make a deliciously healthy dessert or icing. Have you tried that one yet? I do like coconut milk, too :)

  9. Deena Kakaya says:

    Oh wow, so rich, light and simple to make; excellent combination. Can you taste the coconut? X

    • Poppy says:

      I didn’t detect the coconut really Deena but I use very very dark chocolate so there may be a bit of flavour if a lighter cocoa choc is used…also I think it will depend on any additional flavourings. If you wanted to accentuate the coconut, adding dried coconut or coconut butter would be delicious :) x

  10. Perfection! Will try this later…

  11. mummytohenry says:

  21. Thanks for this, I’ll be trying it as a chocolate ganache. I wonder if your recipe will also work as chocolate truffles. Turn it into small balls and dust it with cocoa!! :)

  22. What a dangerous recipe Poppy – it’s just too easy to make!! I will try it for sure, but only when I’m having guests so I don’t overindulge. :)
