    Serves: 6


    1/4-cup ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat a tea kettle full of water.
    2. 2
      In a small heavy saucepan, heat milk and chocolate over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until chocolate is melted and mixture just comes to a boil.
    3. 3
      Stir in vanilla and remove pan from heat.
    4. 4
      In a glass mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until well blended.
    5. 5
      Add the chocolate milk mixture to the egg yolk mixture in a slow stream, whisking constantly.
    6. 6
      Pour the custard mixture through a very fine sieve into a 2-cup measure or a small pitcher.
    7. 7
      Divide the custard among six 1/4-cup ramekins and cover each with foil. Put the ramekins in a baking dish and add enough hot water to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
    8. 8
      Bake the custards on the middle rack of the oven for 25 minutes, or until just set. Transfer ramekins to a rack and cool, covered.
    9. 9
      Chill the custards, covered, for at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.
    10. 10
      Serve custards garnished with whipped cream and candied violets*.
    11. 11
      NOTE: Candied (crystallized) violets can be found in some supermarkets and at specialty food shops. If you can't find candied violets, use fresh mint sprigs or raspberries instead.
