Milk Chocolate And White Chocolate Pots De Creme

default recipe image
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.
