Chocolate Cups

This is a super quick, elegant dessert to throw together if you have unexpected company. My good friend Betsy (really, I have a friend with my same name!) made these for us, gave us the recipe when we requested it, and we've been making them ever since! Garnish with fresh mint, chocolate shavings, a few raspberries, or whatever you like.
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoons liqueur or dark rum
  • whipped cream  

Heat milk to boiling. Put chocolate chips, sugar, liqueur, egg, and salt in a blender. Blend on lowest speed and slowly add boiling milk in a steady stream. Blend 1 minute more. Spoon (pour) into 4 small cups or ramekins. Allow to set in refrigerator at least 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream and mint garnish before serving. 

Serves 4
