Chocolate Coeur a la Crème is one of those simple and delectable recipes I saw Emeril make on his show way back when, and it just stuck with me. That often happens to me (with food). You know, I see it once (I don’t even have to taste it) and I can’t get it out of my mind until I make it mine. Finally the day has come and I am thrilled to share this delicious, perfectly balanced, light, yet indulgent dessert in all its glory with you!
Emeril served his Chocolate Coeur a la Crème with chocolate covered strawberries. Since you will already be melting chocolate to mix with the cream cheese batter you can go ahead and melt some more to dip and coat your favorite fresh fruit. I added delightfully bright orange zest to the batter and am serving this with Cherry Compote. The Coeur a la Crème itself is dense and not cloying and the soft, sweet, fruit compote is really the perfect complement. But like I always say – do what you like and make it your own.
As usual I shot this video at my home-away-from-home, my sister-in-law’s sister-in-law’s kitchen. Thank you to the Mor family for having the most beautiful big kitchen - large enough to accommodate our 5 person crew and all our crazy equipment.
Watch and learn my friends.
