Pots de Creme
Ingredients:
• 6 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped
• 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
• 2/3 cup whole milk
• 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons instant-espresso powder*
• 6 large egg yolks
• 2 tablespoons sugar

Method:
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 300°F.
Put chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Bring cream, milk, espresso powder (to taste), and a pinch of salt just to a boil in a small heavy saucepan, stirring until espresso powder is dissolved, then pour over chocolate, whisking until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
Whisk together yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt in another bowl, then add warm chocolate mixture in a slow stream, whisking constantly. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a 1-quart glass measure and cool completely, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
Line bottom of a baking pan (large enough to hold ramekins) with a folded kitchen towel and arrange ramekins on towel. Poke several holes in a large sheet of foil with a skewer. Divide custard among ramekins, then bake custards in a hot water bath , pan covered tightly with foil, until custards are set around edges but still slightly wobbly in centers, 30 to 35 minutes.
Transfer ramekins to a rack to cool completely, uncovered, about 1 hour. (Custards will set as they cool.) Chill, covered, until cold, at least 3 hours

The Whitney Salted Carmel

Ingredients:
• 6 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped
• 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
• 2/3 cup whole milk
• 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons instant-espresso powder*
• 6 large egg yolks
• 2 tablespoons sugar

Method:
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar and water over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat and bring to a boil, without stirring. If necessary, use a wet pastry brush to wash down any crystals on the side of the pan. Boil until the syrup is a deep amber color, about 5 to 6 minutes.
Remove the sugar from the heat and carefully whisk in the heavy cream. The mixture will bubble. Stir in the unsalted butter, and salt. Transfer the caramel to a dish and cool.
