Happy Weekend Friends! 🤗

Are you a chocolate lover? 🍫 If so, you're in for a sweet treat!

Valentine's Day has come and gone, however, February is National Chocolate Lovers Month all month long. Yummm!!! 💝

Since it's officially still February, I'd thought we'd celebrate all the chocolaty goodness that chocolate is with a tempting dessert! 😍


Today, I'll share with you the recipe for a QUICK and EASY dessert that will surely impress the most discerning chocolate connoisseur...

It's called "The 5 Minute Chocolate Dessert".


Recently, I stumbled upon this gem of a recipe on YouTube courtesy of Chef Raymond Blanc.

To my delight, I was able to prepare this in FIVE MINUTES with surprisingly delicious results! Oh, and with just a FEW INGREDIENTS!


In his how-to video, Chef Blanc stresses the importance of using a high quality bittersweet chocolate. Lucky for me, I had a box of Guittard 70% cacao in the pantry.

Another win with this recipe is that there is NO added sugar!


The 5 Minute Chocolate Dessert Recipe



160 grams (5.64 fl oz) of heavy cream
70 grams (2.5 fl oz) of milk
150 grams of 70% cacao bittersweet chocolate
1 whole organic egg
garnish with your choice of toppings

Yield: 2 servings



  1. First, chop or grate your bar of bittersweet chocolate.

  2. In a small saucepan, heat the milk and cream to a boil. Meanwhile, whisk a whole egg in a separate medium-sized bowl. Once the milk and cream are boiling, remove the saucepan from heat and whisk together the milk, cream and egg. Briskly whisk (in a figure eight motion) to thicken all the combined ingredients.

  3. Next, add chocolate and stir until smooth. Once smooth and creamy, pour into a stemmed cocktail glass and allow to chill and set in the refrigerator for two - three hours.

  4. Once chilled, garnish with whatever toppings you like!

💡Tip: Adding 1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla bean paste will help to sweeten your chocolate dessert.

That was super easy-peasy! Now, you're ready to serve and enjoy! ❤️



Thanks for commenting, upvoting and resteeming this post! I hope my post will inspire you to treat yourself to something sweet! Until next time...

Bon Appétit!

that chocolaty dessert looks like a sliver of smooth, creamy, delectably delightful heavenly bliss! 😋 :D

I figure though that the garnishing "toppings" may have taken a bit more than 5 minutes to "throw together" though! Regardless, looks delicious either way... nom nom nom

Haha! You're right @alexpmorris! The chocolate decorations took about 10 minutes more! So happy you enjoyed this dish ; )

Sweet desserts with chocolate-a worthy completion of any meal. It is difficult for us to believe that chocolate mass was combined in pre-Columbian America... with spicy spices: there is no, chocolate for us-sweet dessert (and only!).

Looks like very hearty fare for Valentine's day.

Yup, it's a hearty, chocolaty custard party :P

Looks sooo amazing. I just started cooking with chocolate. 100% baking chocolate is my choice. Hard to understand one minding the bitter taste if a true chocolate lover.

Anyway thank for the recipe. Hmm a wisk huh.

I also began using coconut oil for the first time. Amazing stuff.

Per the chef's instructions, this works best with 70-80%... otherwise, it would need added sugar.

80% then :)

ay, qué rico se veeee 1f338.png

It tasted as rich as it looked! If not more so!

Aunque se ve demasiado bello para comerlo, peeero soy una adicta al chocolate 😍😍😍😍😋😋😋

This is exactly what I need for weekend..5 Minutes Chocolate Dessert for all chocolate lover!;) I appreciate how easy it is and your decoration - way how you served it ;)I will try it on Sunday :))

Thank you @liltammy! I hope you do get the chance to try this one out! Enjoy and Have a Happy Weekend!

Looks delicious! Dark chocolate for me. I like 80% and up. Upvoted!

Ooh la la... 80%... you're quite the chocolate lover, hehe!

Waw, this is amaizing

I think chocolaty custard is! Yum, yum!

Beautiful and yum. Nice pics.

Thank you @tesscooks4u!

Congratulations¡. Before incorporating the chocolate I would put a dash of sarrapia (Dipteryx odorata).
try it, you will not regret

Is that legal? And is it a hallucinogenic?

Oh, it's legal. Used just like nutmeg, a little is enough. The sarrapia has many uses, as a digestive drink in the Angostura bitters accompanied by whiskey, to flavor tobacco, to make perfumes, in the bechamel sauce...

Interesting! And it's available in the U.S.?

It seems that in U.S its alimentary use is prohibited, If that is true it is a pity. At present the sarrapia or Fève Tonka is highly valued in France.

Incredible delicious food recipe.I very much like it.And your brilliant photography makes it more amazing.
Keep it up

That's sweet of you @sharifulislamm! Happy you enjoyed both the recipe idea and the pics ; )

looks delicious @michellectv

This looks simply devine! And it's amazing that is only takes 5 minutes to make. YUM!

Thank you @keciah! Once you have all of your ingredients prepared and toppings picked out, yes, the custard only take five minutes to prepare!
