Directions

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

In a medium saucepan, combine the cream and sugar; heat until the cream is steaming and sugar is dissolved. Meanwhile, place yolks in a medium bowl; gradually whisk in the hot cream mixture a little at a time. Add the chocolate to the hot custard and let stand 2 minutes, then stir until combined. Strain the chocolate custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher.

Fill a roasting pan with 1 inch of water and place 6 (4-ounce) ramekins in the water. Divide the custard mixture evenly among the ramekins. Bake the custards in the water bath until set, but still wobbly in the center, about 35 minutes. Remove the custards from the water bath and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.

To serve, top the custards with the whipped cream and fresh fruit, if desired.

This recipe was provided by professional chefs and has been scaled down from a bulk recipe provided by a restaurant. The Food Network Kitchens chefs have not tested this recipe, in the proportions indicated, and therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.

    I was asked to do a "Dessert Only" Wedding Reception for 420 people...this recipe was the easiest to make for such a large event.
    It is the best, smoothest tasting mousse I've ever made. I recommend it to anyone who loves chocolate. I also melted raspberry filling/jam and poured it on top after putting a dollop of whipped cream!!! Yum

    I would like to try this recipe as it sounded so good on the show. However, this version of the recipe leaves out the ganache topping that everyone on the show was raving about. I know how to make a ganache and can probably replicate something equally delicious but I am irritated that it wasn't included :( I guess the baker needs to have a few secrets ;
