Chocolate Cherry Pots de Creme Recipe

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 4 egg yokes
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 vanilla bean – split, seeded
  • ½ – ¾ cup Chukar Cherries Jubilee/Sour Cherry Pie Filling/Dried Tart Cherries


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Bring cream, vanilla bean, and cocoa powder to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate until smooth. Set aside for later.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk yolks and sugars together. Gradually add in creamy chocolate mixture to eggs, without cooking them. Strain mixture into a pitcher.
  4. Grease 4-6 ramekins and evenly distribute the Cherries Jubilee between them. Then gently pour custard into ramekins.
  5. Place ramekins in a water bath and into oven. Bake for 45-55 minutes, until centers are jiggly, but not runny. Remove from oven and let stand for 2-3 hours before serving. Can be refrigerated ahead of time!
