Twix chocolate pots

A Twix chocolate pot with a scoop taken out, served with more Twixes

I suppose it’s a bit late for me to be posting a recipe that’s as perfect for Valentine’s Day as these Twix chocolate pots. Turns out having a small baby makes you a bit disorganised – who knew! But hopefully you’ll still have time to make these for your love if you want to (and if you don’t have a partner, make them for yourself – you’re worth it!). They only take about 15 minutes to prepare, then just leave them overnight to set.

I’ve made chocolate pots a few times in the past – chocolate pots with salted caramelchocolate pots with peanut butter, even pink chocolate pots (also perfect for V-Day!). The basic recipe is always the same, then you can add whatever tasty extras you like. This time I added luscious caramel and a biscuit base to make chocolate pots inspired by one of my favourite chocolate bars, a Twix!

I used these big glass ramekins for my Twix chocolate pots, purely because I wanted the three layers to be visible in the photos – but really, these ramekins are a bit too big. You could easily get away with making your chocolate pots half this size. They’re really rich! I’m not saying I didn’t eat a whole one of these enormous pots… but I probably shouldn’t have. You should be able to get 8 chocolate pots out of this recipe, and you could even stretch it to 10 if you only want a little nibble of something sweet. If you’re only making them for you and your Valentine, just enjoy having leftovers!

(By the way, I’ve put the nutritional information below, but I would recommend not looking, and just enjoying your Twix chocolate pots instead. Life’s too short!)

Ingredients

For the base:

  • 100 g digestive biscuits, or similar - about 6 biscuits
  • 45 g (~ 3 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted
  • ~ 8 tbsp dulce de leche or caramel sauce

For the chocolate layer:

  • 50 g (scant 1/4 cup) unsalted butter
  • 280 g (~ 10 oz) milk chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 300 ml (~ 1 1/8 cups) double cream / heavy cream

Instructions

  • Place the digestive biscuits in a plastic food bag, and crush them thoroughly. Transfer them to a bowl, and add the 45g melted butter. Mix well.
  • Distribute the biscuit mixture between around 8 small ramekins, pressing it down firmly. Top each biscuit base with a spoonful of dulce de leche (or similar caramel sauce).
  • To make the chocolate layer, add the 50g butter, milk chocolate, and cream to a saucepan, and place over a low heat. Stirring regularly, heat the mixture gently until it all melts and forms a smooth, silky mixture.
  • Divide the chocolate mixture between the ramekins, then place in the fridge overnight to set. Serve chilled.

Looks heavenly! These could easily be adapted for some kind of cute Easter dessert too by adding something colorful on top.
