As one of diners’ most beloved dishes, pot de crème is a prime example of dessert trends returning to simple roots—showcasing the pure classic taste of chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, and other flavors without excessive garnishes and sauces.


If you’re a dessert aficionados looking to mark the holiday with a special treat, then check out FIG & OLIVE’s comforting Chocolate Pot de Crème with Crunchy Praline Financiers and Vanilla Cream (available for $9). It stops short of over-indulgence with a shaving of orange zest and a modest-sized glass cup.

If you want to celebrate the holiday at home, we just happen to have their famous recipe here for you! Give it a try and let us know how it goes.
