Success Hint
Pots de Crème is a creamy, rich French custard served in small pot-shaped cups. Its consistency is slightly soft and not as firm as a traditional pudding.
You can make this dessert up to 24 hours ahead. Just cover each dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Special Touch
Top each serving with a couple of raspberries and fresh mint leaves.
