Non-alcoholic chocolate pots

HI All,
We have people coming for dinner tomorrow and I want to do Jamie's chocolate pots for pudding ('The Return of the Naked Chef', page 242-243) but the people coming are tee-total. Has anyone tried the chocolate pots minus the brandy? Does it taste the same? help

Re: Non-alcoholic chocolate pots

I make chocolate pots by heating double cream to near boiling and then stiring in some broken plain chocolate .
(I take the pan off the heat when the cream has heated)

taste it, as just occasionaly it will need a tiny bit of sugar added.

Thats it!!!

be a bit carefull though ,if you refridgerate them be sure to remove them from the fridge at least  1/2 hour to soften.
(otherwise they will be set like concrete  lol )

I tend to make the chocolate pots in little expersso cups ..or little tiny dishes.

These are so simple thet I made them with a 5year old recently. He wanted them made with Cadburys Dairy milk  chocolate and my daughter said that they were awsome!

You should be able to substitute orange juice for brandy.  A different taste, but still very good  smile

How about a touch of cinammon, a grate of nutmeg and some dark grape juice?

Re: Non-alcoholic chocolate pots

If you have a thermometer, you can easily reduce tye alcohol content of the brandy to zero.

Just heat it in gently in a pan. when it reaches 100C - 212F, all  the alcohol has been driven off (alcohol boils at 60C ).

Use the alcohol-free brandy smile

Re: Non-alcoholic chocolate pots

As an experiment, when they've had the chocolate pots, place the brandy bottle somewhere they can see it, and see if they start feeling or acting drunk.

Forget the miniscule amount of booze - orange zest in all things choco!
Even choco chip cookies. Flipping fantastic.
