Chocolate Pot de crème

Total time: approximately 1.5 hours + chill time (3 hours)

Ingredients:
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup whole milk
5 ounces Mokaya Single Origin blend chocolate, chopped
6 large egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 325°F. Bring cream and milk just to simmer in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Add chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth. Whisk yolks and sugar in large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in hot chocolate mixture. Strain mixture into another bowl. Cool 10 minutes, skimming any foam from surface.

Divide custard mixture among six 3/4-cup custard cups or soufflé dishes. Cover each with foil. Place cups in large baking pan. Add enough hot water to pan to come halfway up sides of cups. Bake until custards are set but centers still move slightly when gently shaken, about 55 minutes. Remove from water. Remove foil. Chill custards until cold, about 3 hours.

Toasty S'mores

The name s'more is short for "some more." The recipe first appeared in a 1927 American Girl Scouts handbook and has since become a humble but well-known staple in the history of chocolate.

S'mores can be cooked outdoors over a campfire, grilled or even microwaved. This version is cooked in a toaster oven.

Ingredients:
Graham Crackers
Mokaya Chocolate (Single Origin recommended)
Large marshmallows

Preparation:
For each ½ graham cracker, use 2 squares of Mokaya and a large marshmallow. Place the graham cracker on a toaster oven tray. Top with squares of Mokaya and the marshmallow. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt. Cover with remaining ½ graham cracker.
