Two Ingredient Chocolate Pots

IMG_3873

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.

Method:

  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. :)
