Chocolate Pots de Creme

This dairy-free Chocolate Pots de Creme recipe is easy to make with only 5 ingredients –dark chocolate, coconut milk, egg yolk, stevia, and salt, and is so creamy it melts in your mouth. So even though the name “pot de creme” is quite fancy, don’t be intimidated by this recipe!

My husband inhaled these and the boys enjoyed them too, in spite of their aversion to dark chocolate. I like this Paleo dessert because it relies on stevia as its primary sweetener and does not have any added honey. It can also work well for those on a keto diet if made with dark chocolate that is 80% cacao or more. Serve this dairy-free dessert after dinner or at the end of a family brunch.

  1. This looks wonderful, but I do wish you’d use raw cacao your recipes. $70 for chocolate chunks is a little beyond my budget.

    • Hi Martha, thanks for your comment and for sharing your concern. Any dark chocolate that is 70-80% cacao will work for this recipe. You don’t need to buy the 5 pound bag that I link to :-)

  2. OMG! I’m in love with this recipe! I add white chocolate because I didn’t have enough of milk chocolate! I’m in heaven!

  3. This looks Delicious! Could I substitute Cacao Powder for chocolate chunks? If so, any idea approx how much?

    • I’m going to do the same thing Ashley, and it will be 1/2 cup cocoa powder. If you want more next time, increase it each time until your Chocolate monster is satisfied. ;)

    • Remember when substituting cocoa powder for solid chocolate that there is also an oil component that you need to account for. It also depends on what kind of chocolate you are looking to substitute. For every one ounce of bitter or semi-sweet chocolate you replace with powder, you would need to also increase the sweetness and add an oil (probably coconut oil in this case). The chocolate that is recommended in this recipe is definitely bittersweet.

  4. This looks absolutely delicious!
    It’s great that there’s only stevia in it too, so it’s great for a hyperglycemic like myself. I can have my chocolate fix & eat it too~?

  5. Oh my goodness! I think i just found tonight’s dessert! adding a can of coconut milk to my grocery list now!

  6. Thank you for posting this recipe. I made it for thanksgiving and it was absolutely delicious. I would have liked it a little thicker. I’m not sure if I heated the milk too long, or blended all the ingredients together too long. Either way, it was very good.

  7. Is there a substitute for the Stevia, like maple syrup or agave? Also, how much would I use in place of the Stevia. Thanks. This looks delicious.

  8. My I use trader Joes almond flour in your recipes ( ask for blanched almond flour?) I am just starting out. your recipes look great, but dont want to buy a 5 lb bag at this time.

    thank you Lonnda [email protected]
