Chocolate Pot de Creme with Blood Orange Whipped Cream
Dark Chocolate Pot de Creme
12 ounces high-quality bittersweet chocolate chips (or chopped)
3 cups Half & Half
6 large egg yolks
8 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup Enchanted Olive Oro Bailen Picual
1/4 teaspoon salt
 
Blood Orange Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon Enchanted Olive Blood Orange olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
 
Directions
Place the chocolate and olive oil in a blender. Whisk the Half & Half, egg yolks, granulated sugar and salt in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Sir the mixture constantly, making sure to  scrape the bottom and edge of the pot with a heatproof spoon or spatula so that the mixture does not burn. Continue to stir until the the custard thickens and coats the spoon and almost begins to simmer. (About 5 minutes).

Immediately pour the custard over the olive oil and chocolate in the blender. Cover and hold the lid with a thick kitchen towel; blend until combined and smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Divide the chocolate mixture among 6 ramekins or cups and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Whip the cream and blood orange olive oil with the confectioners’ sugar with a mixer or in the blender until soft peaks form. Top the chilled pots de creme with whipped cream before serving.
