Romance is in the air at Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering

February 13, 2019Lauren Windle

Oh, does Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering have a way with delicious desserts!

We are known for our triple-layer double chocolate cakes, tiramisu in a glass, sinfully rich caramel apple pie, fresh key lime pie, and our oven-warm cookies – to mention a few.

And since each of our desserts is handmade from scratch, we delight in the compliments we get as we serve our guests – many of whom come back guiltily for seconds!

Here and there, we can be coaxed to provide a special recipe or two. Since rich decadent desserts are part of the language of love, and this is February, here is our Valentine to you -- our most-requested dessert recipe:



3/4 cup sugar

1 cup milk

1 1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

8 ounces best quality dark chocolate (such as Lindt 70% dark), roughly chopped

6 egg yolks, lightly beaten


  • Preheat oven to 270°F. Place 6 ramekins in a large baking dish. Pour cold water into baking dish until it reaches halfway up ramekins.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, heavy cream, and vanilla.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add dark chocolate and whisk until mixture is thickened and smooth. Take mixture off heat.
  • Place egg yolks in a large bowl. Slowly add chocolate mixture, whisking until completely smooth.
  • Divide chocolate mixture evenly among ramekins. Cover baking dish with foil.
  • Bake until custard is cooked but still jiggly in the center, about 1 hour 20 minutes.
  • Remove ramekins from water bath and bring to room temperature. Chill in refrigerator until cold

Enjoy with your Valentine!
