A single crystal of salt garnishes these almost sinful chocolaty treats. The truffles are made with bittersweet chocolate, heavy cream, fine sea salt, vanilla extract and cocoa butter. This recipe is by Christie Matheson from her book Salty Sweets.
These "precious" little sweets are served in tiny shot glasses. The use of condensed milk and espresso emulates Vietnamese Coffee.
This version of pots de creme has two layers, one of white chocolate and one of milk chocolate. The cooking is all done "stovetop" so no baking in a water bath. The recipe takes a bit more time to prepare than many of the others so keep it for a special occasion.
The name of this Mexican Chocolate Pie in Spanish is Pay de Chocolate. This marvelous pie is from Elote Cafe located in Sedona, AZ. Chef Jeff Smedstad gets the credit for this chocolate delight. If you are in Sedona, Elote Cafe is a "don't-miss" restaurant. The recipe is from the Chef's Cookbook, Elote Cafe Cookbook.
