Chocolate Cups

If you ever need a quick, impressive, super chocolaty dessert, this is it!  Rachel Ray demonstrated this recipe on Oprah many years ago & I copied it down on a piece of notepaper.  RR said that it was her Mom's recipe & it's a very good one. 

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 T. sugar
pinch salt
2 T. liquor of choice *
Put all the above ingredients in a blender & blend away.
Add 2/3 cup hot, hot milk  to the blender, in a slow, steady stream, on low speed.     (I heated mine in the microwave until it boiled).  Cover the blender & blend for one minute.  (The hot milk cooks the egg.)   Pour into teacups or demitasse cups.  Refrigerate until set, which takes 30-45 minutes.  Add whipped cream to garnish.

Makes 4 demitasse cups or 2 teacups.

*  instead of liquor, add maybe a teaspoon of vanilla.
So pretty for a tea party dessert!!

  15. Looks wonderful! Adding an egg was a surprise but I guess it makes it thicker? Beautiful presentation, Laura

  16. Mmm, yum! That looks so good, Kitty! Thanks for sharing the recipe and Happy Pink Saturday.


  17. First of all, never - ever - substitute vanilla for booze. i dig the crap outta my vanilla, but chocolate with a minty or orange liquor is always a good combination.

    Second of all, i adore the simplicity of this and the fact that it is essentially a "natural" chocolate "pudding"... that store bought stuff scares me. well done!

  18. mmmm, sounds good and looks beautiful and yummy! Happy Pink Saturday! I'm tending to pick teapots, mugs, pitchers and now I can add teacups! Had some cheesecake pie and now this chocolately dessert. Yum! :) Thanks, Jenn Okay - open ID isn't being nice today - if you come to my blog by way of the icon - you'll need to click twice to get over there. I blog on WordPress and Google will be my signing choice now that Open ID is finicky.
