Mocha Faux de Crème

Mocha Faux de Crème

Custards are traditionally thickened with eggs and range in flavor and consistency, from a pourable crème anglaise sauce to a thick and rich crème brûlée.  This custard recipe is a nontraditional take on pots de crème (pronounced poh-de-krem), which is a fancy shmancy French word for a custard made with milk and cream and baked in a water bath.  Together, you and I are going to fake our way through this one with my faux de creme recipe, which is just as sumptuous as the original with significantly less effort.  C’est magnifique!
