This was absolutely fabulous. Made this to surprise my husband one Valentine's Day and he still remembers it and asks for it.

I wasn't planning on making a Valentine's Day desert, but I had the cream on hand since I didn't wake up at dawn to make breakfast for my husband. I haven't seen how it sets yet, but the bit I had from scraping up bits was delicious. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and it melts fine. Do make sure to pull your yolk mixture off the heat as you add the chocolate. I think I was close to burning my chocolate, but so far so good. Hope he likes our surprise desert to follow up the dinner we make together.
