Comfort Food

I saw this recipe in a magazine the other day and thought I would try it for company we were going to have over on the weekend.

I have not made this custard before but knowing it was a Paula Deen family favorite, I knew it would be good. Semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl. Always yummy!

Heavy whipping cream and milk in a kettle. Bring to a low boil. Pour over the chocolate.

Beat 4 egg yolks, salt and sugar together. Blend into the chocolate mixture.

Pour into six ramekins and place in a casserole dish. Fill with hot water till half way up the ramekins. Cover the pan with foil and make little pin holes all over to vent.

The finished product is so yummy!
You can take a cup of heavy whipping cream and 5 Tbs. of butterscotch or--- I used caramel ice cream topping--and beat together with beaters till thickened.
The custard is not too rich or too heavy.
I forgot to take pic of the custard with the topping but you can see it on the magazine page above.

You can see more details of the recipe if you click on the magazine pic above.
Thanks for stopping by today!

How simple, yet I bet decadent! I have dessert so infrequently these days- but a splurge every now and then won't kill me, will it?
