s'mores pot de creme
My husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I typically cook a nicer-than-usual meal plus dessert. Dessert is definitely a special occasion in our house because if and when we have sweets around the house, they get eaten immediately and we end up feeling miserable all week. My strategy this year: make single serving desserts! I’m so excited about these pot de cremes (which is basically a fancy term for chocolate pudding or custard) because they’re rich, fluffy and just the right amount of sweet. I topped them with toasted marshmallows and used the graham crackers for dipping…YUM. You can also crush the grahams on top for additional s’morey-ness.
