These 5-minute white chocolate pots de crème are the BEST super quick make ahead dessert. They contain just 3 ingredients – white chocolate, water, and double cream, and really do take just 5 minutes to make! Add a few berries and some shortbread for a classy low maintenance dessert that impresses every time.
The chocolate mixture may go horrible and stiff when you first start adding the water. No problem – just keep adding and stirring!
You may find that your chocolate pots vary a bit each time you make them depending on what type of chocolate you use. It doesn’t matter – they’re always delicious!
Thickened cream works too. You might just find that your desserts end up thicker because of the little bit of gelatine in thickened cream.
If you decide to make these with either milk or dark chocolate, use my original 5-minute chocolate pots recipe instead of this recipe. The amount of each ingredient is a bit different as milk and dark chocolate sets differently to white chocolate. You can even make chocolate pots with a layer of white chocolate and a layer of milk or dark. These will take slightly longer to make of course, but they’re REALLY delicious and in my opinion worth the extra effort!
You may want to take your desserts out of the fridge an hour or two before serving so that you can serve them at room temperature. They’ll still be set nicely but won’t be so cold – totally up to you!
