This was a good recipe. I was excited to try it out. Such a simple method. I didnt have semisweet chocolate chips, so I used andes mints chopped up. I thought it would add more flavour. And it did. However, the pot de creme didnt set well enough, so it was kind of like a soupy mousse. I will try this recipe again following every step to the letter.
