How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. with shelf in center of oven.
  • Bring to a boil 1 1/2 cups water and keep hot.
  • Place chopped chocolate in a medium size bowl.
  • Combine the milk, cream and cinnamon in a medium size saucepan.
  • Bring just to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Remove pan from heat.
  • Pour mixture over the chopped chocolate in the bowl.
  • Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, vanilla and salt in a bowl until blended.
  • Continue to whisk constantly, while slowly adding the warm chocolate mixture until blended.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a 4-cup glass measuring cup.
  • Place 8 four-ounce ramekins in a baking dish that is at least 3 inches deep.
  • Pour the custard into the ramekins evenly.
  • Carefully pour the hot water into the baking dish about halfway up sides of custard cups.
  • Cover baking dish tightly with foil.
  • Poke a few holes in the center with a knife or skewer.
  • Carefully place the baking dish in the oven.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until custard is set but still jiggles a little in the center when you tap the side of the ramekin with a metal spoon.
  • Use tongs or mitts to CAREFULLY remove the ramekins from the baking pan to a cooling rack.
  • Cool for 30 minutes.
  • Once cooled thoroughly, refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Serve chilled.
  • Garnish with berries and dust lightly with powdered sugar, if desired.
