This recipe is a great way to mix up the ol’ traditional pumpkin pie standard!
In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat together pudding mix, milk, sour cream, pumpkin puree, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whip for about 2 minutes until mixture thickens. Put it in the refrigerator and allow it to chill for 1 hour.
In another bowl, whip together the whipping cream, vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Whip until stiff peaks, about 3-5 minutes on high speed.
Then make the crust. Crush Oreo cookies (in a bag or a food processor) until you have fine crumbs. Mix in the melted butter.
Place about 1 teaspoon of the cookie crumbs into the bottom of 20 small shot glasses. Fill up the rest of the way with pumpkin mixture. Top with whipping cream. If you have any cookie crumbs left, sprinkle those on top.
Serve chilled. They can be chilled for up to 4 hours before serving.
The ‘pots’ for pots de crème au chocolat are not a requirement for making this dark chocolate cream. The dessert may very well be made in ramekins and it will taste every bit as good.
In taste and texture the baked cream resembles a dark chocolate truffle which is why a small ‘pot’ goes a long way. However the special charm of the dessert is in the tubby little lidded ceramic ‘pots’ in which it traditionally is baked.
I chose to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate, so that the chocolate flavor would really punch through. This provided the perfect balance of chocolate to make the whole frosting completely “milk chocolate” in flavor.
