Hazelnut Chocolate Custards {Recipe}

I’m a hazelnut-aholic.  I enjoy flavored Hazelnut coffee, I add Coffee-Mate’s Hazelnut Flavored Creamer to my regular coffee.  And if I ever found myself “in a bind” (my excuse to use it) and out of milk, I’d add it to pancake mix (soooo good!).

You can imagine my excitement when coming across this recipe for Hazelnut Chocolate Custards.  And who doesn’t love dessert in a ramekin?  Makes me extra happy.

Hazelnut Chocolate Custards

  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 2/3 cup Coffee-mate Hazelnut Flavor
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 large eggs

PREHEAT oven to 300 degrees F.

PLACE morsels, Coffee-mate and cream in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until morsels are melted and mixture is completely smooth. Remove from heat.

WHISK egg yolks in small mixer bowl until thoroughly mixed. Whisk about 1 tablespoon chocolate mixture into egg mixture. Continue to gradually add chocolate mixture until combined. Pour evenly into five 4-ounce custard cups. Place in 12 x 9-inch baking dish. Pour hot water into baking dish to 1/2-inch depth (about halfway).

BAKE for 30 minutes or until custards are set around edges and centers still move. Remove custard cups from water; refrigerate to cool completely. Once cool, cover with plastic wrap. Custards can be made up to 2 days in advance.
