Chocolate Nutella Pots With Boozy Cream - Cook Republic

This planet is a very special place. For a number of reasons. One of them is chocolate. And the other is egg. They both make men weak and women swoon, especially if they are molten and runny. How many brown and yellow things can boast of that? We can’t always buy a hug, but we sure can buy a little bit of chocolate or fry an egg.

 

Eggs And Chocolate - Cook Republic

I thought hard and long about what ingredient was essential to me in the kitchen. I adore the humble egg, absolutely and completely. And then there is chocolate. The darker the better. A profound love without any fanfare (unlike the eggs that I gush about to everyone and anyone).

Where eggs are my country rough, chocolate is my silent sophistication. I cannot imagine my days without eggs and my nights without chocolate. In fact if you were marooned on an island with means to make fire, a couple of eggs and a block of chocolate; you would be set for life. Unless of course there was a man-eating tribe residing on the same island or the island was a figment of your imagination, then …

 

Chocolate Nutella Pots With Irish Cream

 

Coming back to my two essential ingredients, you can create magic with a couple of eggs and a block of chocolate. I decided to use them together to create a simple and naughty dessert perfect for a cold evening, a glass of red and a roaring fire.

If you lived in other parts of this planet where it is hot as hell and everyone is jumping in pools and eating stonefruit, you could slop a dollop of ice cream on this beauty and go at it with a spoon. I made Chocolate Nutella Pots With Boozy Whipped Cream.

Whipped Egg Whites

 

There is no baking, just mixing which is absolutely fun. Like a science experiment gone surprisingly right, the chocolate and eggs come together in the form of a gooey rich mousse set in upcycled jam jars. You could make these ahead for a dinner party or barbecue, slap the lids on and refrigerate until ready to use. Make sure you lick your spoons and your fingers too! And now for heaps and heaps of pictures of this luscious dessert, because you can never have enough chocolate or nutella pictures, right?

    Excuse me while I clean up this puddle of nutella-related drool that has collected on my desk. These look amazing! And I think they’re perfect for winter. There is something about dark chocolate that is warming, even when it’s served cold.

    Nutella should come with a warning label. I can eat it with a spoon straight out of the jar. Thanks for the recipe.
