My most recent expression of chocolate love are these Chocolate Raspberry Pots. These pots of bliss are not exactly pudding, nor or they mouse. They are not a custard nor a ganache. What they are is best described as a creamy, rich, decadent, chocolate-craving satisfying treat, that brings me immense pleasure and joy. They are nearly effortless to make and contain only 4 ingredients. Added bonus, they can easily be made sugar free and they keep well when refrigerated in an airtight container, so you can feel the love for days in a row. Life is short, eat the chocolate!
Chocolate Raspberry Pots:
- 1 can full fat coconut milk
- 1.5 cups of chocolate chips (I used Lily's stevia sweetened to keep it sugar free)
- 2 tablespoons of raspberry jam (I used my favorite, St. Dalfour Fruit Spread, because it is sweetened with fruit juice only, keeping this treat refined sugar free.)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a medium sized heavy bottom saucepan, bring the coconut milk just to a simmer over medium heat. Just as the milk reaches a simmer, removed the pot from the heat and stir in your chocolate chips, 1/2 cup at a time. Once smooth, stir in the raspberry jam and vanilla. Pour the mixture into individual containers with airtight lids (I used 4oz Mason Jars). Allow the mixture to cool before placing the lid on. Once cool, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Feel free to top with fresh berries, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, coconut or nuts.
