Chocolate Pots de Creme

Yesterday D was in the mood for something really Chocolatey. He offered to look up for recipes and choose ‘My Challenge for the Day’. While he was scanning, I was just hoping that he doesn’t choose something too complicated. I guess my prayers were answered. 🙂 The recipe he chose was an easy to make one and to my relief, the ingredients were available in stock

D offered to lend a helping hand and we set about with the process. I just love to have him around, as he takes the monotony out, with all his inquisitive ways. In less than 15 minutes we had severalbowlsful of yummy cinnamon flavouredgooey chocolate heaven. The thought of it itself makes me droooool……. 🙂
