Chocolate Cups

This is soooo easy, but can be made to look sooo elegant! It is delicious and very rich! For variety, layer each parfait with a sprinkle of toffee bits and/ or crushed Andes candies.

1 egg
2 T. sugar
Pinch salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips (or ½ c. each semi- sweet and dark chips)
1 T. vanilla
2/3 c. half and half

whipped cream in a can
garnish of your choice: mint leaf, berry or sprinkles

In blender or food processor combine egg, sugar, salt, chips and vanilla. Heat half and half in a small pan over med/hi heat until it comes to a boil, stirring so it won’t burn. Run blender on low, while pouring boiling milk in a slow stream. (The hot milk will cook the egg and melt the chocolate). Blend 1 minute until smooth. Pour chocolate into small cups. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Garnish with a spray of whipped cream and garnish of your choice. Makes 5 servings

Overweight is something that just sort of snacks up on you.
