Little Gluten-Free Chocolate Pots

Makes 6

This silky dessert starring dark chocolate is the perfect end to any meal. Pair the gluten-free chocolate pots with the delicately crunchy Corn Flour & Almond Shortbread Cookies for a perfect contrast in texture.


  • 1 large pasteurized egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) unsalted butter, cubed and softened
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • Pinch kosher or sea salt
  • 1½ cups (6 ounces) dark 60% chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) half-and-half


Blend the egg, butter, almond extract and salt in a food processor until creamy. Add the chocolate chips and set aside.

Warm the half-and-half gently in a small saucepan until tiny bubbles form around the edges of the pan. Pour over the chocolate chips and process until the mixture is completely smooth. Transfer to a pitcher and pour through a fine sieve into ramekins or demitasse cups. Let cool completely, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
