at my house .....{choc creme caramel...}

It's been a while since I posted some yummy recipe's.  I made this dessert on the weekend which was recently made by Karen Martini on Better Homes and Garden's - It was really nice, but one that you can enjoy in small portions, which means there is leftovers which we'll be enjoying tonight too!  Another reason why I thought it would be good to share is that the recipe is not on their website - you have to buy the magazine - don't you hate that!


Chocolate Milk
180g dark chocolate
650ml Milk

Method: heat milk in a saucepan until simmering and then pour over dark chocolate (which has been broken into bits and placed in a bowl) - stir until the chocolate melts - set aside.

250g caster sugar
120ml water

Method; place ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until dissolves. stop stirring and only shift the saucepan occasionally.  You will notice the liquid bubbling away and then change from clear to a golden caramel colour - should take approximately 6-10 minutes.  Take saucepan and pour caramel in a 20cm baking dish and then swish it around so it covers the base and sides of the dish. set aside.

4 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
75gms caster sugar

Place ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined. Add the chocolate milk that you made first and stir.  Pour into baking dish over the caramel sauce.

Place dish in a baking tray with a tea towel underneath and fill the tray with boiling water half way up the dish.  Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  When you take it out of the oven it should still wobble a little bit.  let is sit for 10 minutes before transferring the dish to the fridge for at least 6 hours. When ready to serve, run a butter knife around the edge and flip onto a serving plate!

Serve with biscotti and fresh strawberries
