Salted Caramel Chocolate Pots

Salted Caramel Chocolate Pot // Amy Elizabeth

Thanks to various chick lit books and magazine articles, dinner parties always seemed like the bastion on adulthood to my teenage self. I was determined to become a perfect dinner party host; it seemed like the ideal social activity - wine, food and good friends, and all in the comfort of your own home (although there is the small issue of the washing up).

In many ways, adulthood is not how I imagined it, but my one true disappointment is the lack of dinner parties that I was promised. My minuscule dining table just doesn't lend itself to sophisticated gatherings, and sadly the invites to other's houses are also few and far between. Dinner is often offered, but a dinner party is scarce to materialise. Which may explain why a large dining room is top of my house-hunting wish list for when the time comes...

That being said, this is a perfect dinner party dessert if you are lucky enough to be involved in such things. It also makes a decadent weeknight dessert if you're a food blogger who happens to have made a batch of them. They take mere minutes to whip up (you could even cheat and use ready-made caramel sauce if you're in a rush) and will store nicely in the fridge ready to serve to your guests. Whilst I hesitate to be the first to mention Christmas dinner, these would also be a lovely Christmas Day dessert - make them on Christmas Eve and then gorge yourself silly with very little stress. I know salted caramel is horrible in fashion right now, but there's a very good reason for it - and there will be few who can resist these gooey, creamy desserts when placed in front of them...
