Easy Chocolate Pots de Creme

I have made this incredibly easy, incredibly wonderful deep dark chocolate Pot de Creme many times.  It is Chocolate Pots de Cremeprobably the best dark chocolate mousse/pudding I've ever had.  

I have made different variations by changing the rum to a liquor and by using Mexican chocolate with it's cinnamon notes.  I have used it to create different desserts. 

Make it the way it's written the first time you make it and then start your own journey of variations.   It's hard to go wrong with this recipe.....seriously!
