Fig & Olive Signature Chocolate Pot de Crème recipe

Pot de Crème recipe

In celebration of National Pot de Crème Day on Thursday, August 27th, FIG & OLIVE shared their delicious signature Chocolate Pot de Crème recipe with us.

As one of diners’ most beloved dishes, pot de crème is a prime example of dessert trends returning to simple roots—showcasing the pure classic taste of chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, and other flavors without excessive garnishes and sauces. Dessert aficionados can mark the holiday with the restaurant’s comforting Chocolate Pot de Crème with Crunchy Praline Financiers and Vanilla Cream ($9), which stops short of over-indulgence with a shaving of orange zest and a modest-sized glass cup.

Pot de Crème
Serves 10


  • 2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1.5 cups Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 11 Oz of Dark 64% Chocolate

In a separate bowl whisk sugar into the yolks. Slowly temper yolks and add to milk/cream mixture. Mix in chocolate and bring entire mixture to 165 degrees. Then serve and chill overnight.

Vanilla Cream

  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon of Confectioners’ Sugar
