4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

2 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
2 teaspoons Amaretto
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup heavy cream (or half and half)
  • In a blender, whirl all ingredients except cream for 30 seconds.

  • Pour the mixture into individual ramekins. Refrigerate until set, approximately 30 minutes.
Sidebar: Mexican chocolate-In Mexico, cocoa beans are toasted very dark to give it an unusual flavor, then ground over heat with different spices which are often some combination of sugar, canela, almonds and vanilla. It is not heavily beaten and is quite grainy with a course texture. Some Mexican chocolate is imported into the States such as Ibarra and Mayordomo, however if you can’t find any you can substitute 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1 drop almond extract for 1 ounce Mexican chocolate.
