I am sorry but doesn’t this weather make you want to reach for the chocolate??!!! – My chocolate consumption reached new heights over lockdown and I know I was not alone. Those little choc pots in the shops became a rather too frequent pleasure, even though they are expensive, a bit sweet these days (where is the original cheesecake one without the added salted caramel?!!!) and, annoyingly contain palm oil, which I am trying to avoid. – BUT this homemade version is beautifully simple, suitably naughty and comforting, with a little Mexican twist in homage to my love of Mexico. Be warned: they are totally irresistible 😋😋😋 – It is hard to overstate how good the combination of an unaged, blanco tequila, dark chocolate and cream is making this indubitably one of my desert island dishes. So invest in a bottle of good tequila, it is sure to become a good friend – and get chocolate potting…. 🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫 – Thanks for v sexy pic @yukisugiura.photo and @ayamomochan and for chocolate delight @georgia_levy_ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ – – – #chocolate #chocpot #tequila #mexico #eeeeeats #onmytable #foodlover #gimmeoneohitsgone
