Thick. Rich. Creamy. Decadent.

Need an easy 3 ingredient dessert that can be made in advance for your next dinner party? This showstopper fits the bill.

This recipe idea originally came from The Family Meal cookbook by Ferran Adria. Because it is a custard recipe I thought it would be an ideal recipe to cook using the sous vide method.

If you know anything about cooking custards, then you know they can be tricky. Cooking your custard above 185°F (85°C) pretty much guarantees scrambling your eggs, and this is not the type of recipe that you want to mess up. Even though it has only 3 ingredients, the white chocolate can be pretty expensive depending on the brand that you buy so by sous viding the custard you guarantee success by making sure you don't cook it at too high a temperature.

One of the things I love about this recipe is that it's simple to make in advance. So if you're having a dinner party or even a potluck, this is something that you can make and take - just be prepared for compliments!

You can garnish this white chocolate cream any way you like. Fresh berries will be the obvious way to go, but you could also garnish it with toasted nuts, candied citrus peel, or white or dark chocolate curls if you have them. If you have time to make tuile cookies or want to serve the white chocolate cream with store-bought wafer cookies, the crunch would be a nice contrast to the silky white chocolate cream.

Feel free to adjust the portion sizes of this recipe. Because the white chocolate cream is so rich I divided it into 6 portion cups, but you can use 4 cups if you want to give each person a little bit more. You can also pour it in a larger serving dish and then scoop out portions of the cream into glasses for a fun variation. This mixture is so creamy you can probably put it in a Piping Bag with a star tip and pipe it into cups or shot glasses for an extra special presentation.

Cooking Instructions for Sous Vide White Chocolate Cream

For the White Chocolate Cream

Preheat a water bath to 175°F (79.4°C).

Place the egg yolks and heavy cream into a sous vide bag and whisk well. Break up the white chocolate into smaller pieces and add it to the bag as well. Seal the bag using the water displacement method to get out as much air as possible.

Place sealed bag in the water bath and cook for 1 hour.

To Assemble

Remove the white chocolate cream from the bath and transfer to a measuring cup or a container with a pour spout. At this point, the mixture may look separated or curdled. Just give it a quick whisk to smooth it out. Pour into your ramekins and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.

Garnish with fresh berries or whatever you like and serve!
