This rich, creamy, oh so chocolatey dessert is decadent for sure.

It’s also quick and easy.

No baking required.


I promised quick and easy … only 5 ingredients,

7 if you count the whipped cream, and it takes all of 10 minutes.

Ingredients on countertop for Pots de Creme.

Heat milk, combine ingredients in a blender pour into small ramekins and chill.

That’s it!

When ready to serve, make whipping cream and garnish with mint … or a raspberry.

Shave chocolate over the top for extra prettiness.

Planning a romantic dinner a deux?

Be extra decadent and create double portions in larger ramekins.

Or cup and saucer.

And while we’re kicking things up a notch


Why not pair our adults-only dessert with an adult-beverage?!

Easy to make, pretty to look at and delicious to sip.

The perfect pairing for Decadent Chocolate Pots de Creme.

‘Emily in Parks Fans Have Fallen Head Over Heels for This Cocktail’

So says this article in

If you’re caught up on season three you’ve seen Emily and friends enjoying Kir Royale’s.

The standard Kir Royale is made with Creme de Cassis, a black currant liqueur.

My Raspberry Kir Royale version features Chambord (a black raspberry liqueur) instead.

I’ve been collecting vintage silver-plate trays which are fun for serving.

You can find them in consignment stores and Etsy always has a nice selection.

So there you have it.

  • This sounds easy, quick and doable. I have not tried Chambord, but love raspberry (and chocolate) so I’m going to try these for Valentine’s Day. Love your silver-plated tray and brass candlesticks. A beautiful setting, very elegant. I like that you use classic pieces, things you may already have and not something designed for just a particular holiday. Your style is so inspirational. I just wish I could find those great woven book baskets on your bookcases. Lol. I even have my sisters looking for them as they go antiquing/thrifting.

    • Hi Deanna, I wish I could find those book baskets again too. I’m sure they came from the Container Store at least ten years ago. If you have any luck finding them let me know. Chambord is a really great liquor … I love it mixed with champagne and it’s so good in this dessert. The bottle’s beautiful too. Thank you for the lovely compliments … you’ve made my day! xo

  • YES! Chocolate and Kir Royales sound like the absolute perfect Valentine’s Day treat! Thanks for joining us and sharing this delicious recipe. XO

    • Thanks, Ashley … It’s such an honor to be part of the group. So many beautiful and yummy desserts … I think we should be making one, or two, a day!!! xo

  • This recipe looks less rich and easier than than the one I’ve used previously — will definitely try it! It is becoming harder to justify heavy cream as the sole liquid in a dessert recipe (but I NEVER object to whipped cream on top!). And I love Kir and Kir Royale: Chambord will be an interesting change.

    • It tastes a lot richer than the ingredients suggest … and who doesn’t have chocolate chips in the pantry. So easy peasy … and yes to whipped cream! Happy Valentine’s Day. xo

    • Thanks, Jennifer … I loved your sweet and salty dessert mix too. I think I’ll make it for pre-Valentine Super Bowl Sunday. My husband’s going to love it! xo

  • I love the idea of the pots de crème desserts for Valentines dinner. Easy and delicious! Thanks for the inspiration!❤️

  • Hi Juliet,
    The chocolate pots look very decadent. rich and pretty. If you are serving this I know who is going to be on a sugar high for a few hours.
    I used to be the President of the Chocoholics club but I gave up my position.
    I try to stay away from chocolate. I love the smell of it, the smell can so easily temp me back into the danger zone.

    • Chocolate is definitely my weakness … and I try to have a little taste after lunch and dinner. But I’m definitely eating the entire pot on Valentine’s Day!!! President of the Chocoholics?! … I love it! xo

    Juliet, this looks delicious! I made something similar this week! Great minds think alike! Happy almost valentine’s day! xo

    Your pots de creme look so pretty! I’ve never had a Kir Royale, but I was curious after watching Season three of Emily in Paris!

  • 5 stars
    Juliet, This looks so pretty and delicious. I definitely will try this! I love that it’s pretty simple. Chocolate Mousse can be a lot of work. This seems much better. Also the drinks look perfect and I will try the creme de Cassis can be too sweet! Love how pretty you made everything. I have some silver trays from my grandma and you inspired me to get them out.
    Good idea for next week! x

  • These look so yummy! I’ve forwarded this recipe to my son who is always looking for nice easy dessert recipes like this one. I might just have to make it tonight.

  • Hi, I’m Juliet … welcome to Make Mine a Spritzer where we talk about all things home décor, classic style and more! I’m so happy you’re here!
