Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the egg, sugar and salt. Whisk in cream. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture reaches 160*F. and coats the back of a metal spoon.
  2. Remove from the heat; whisk in chocolate chips and vanilla until smooth. Pour into small dessert dishes. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.
  3. Note: Whoops! This is sooo rich. A little bit goes a long way. So rich, like fudge on a spoon, I get a spoon full out once a day: ) If the egg cooks, just push through a seive, or strainer.
  4. This is heavenly. The first time I made it, I used the thermometer but by the time it got to 160 it curdled. The next time, I didn't use the thermometer and used the spoon. Don't let it boil, is the key. Oh yeah, deboogie the egg first!
