What is Chocolate Pots de Creme?
It’s means little pots of baked cream or custard, made with chocolate, eggs, cream and sweetener. Because I used sugar free dark chocolate chips and a little swerve, this is low carb and keto friendly. But, trust me no one will know. It is baked in a water bath.
The Process for Keto Chocolate Pots de Creme
Set up a bain marie. A bain marie is simply a double boiler or a bowl placed over simmering water. In this case the chocolate is warmed along with heavy cream, very similar to making a ganache. It is then incorporated with egg yolks and milk. I use Fair Life Milk which is higher in protein and lower in carbs.
What is Choc Zero Chocolate?
Choc Zero is my go to for sugar free chocolate chips. It melts just like high quality chocolate and tastes the same. The dark chocolate chips tastes like high quality chocolate. I’ve been able to make a very successful chocolate ganache using these chips.
