I combined fresh cranberry salad with the rich custard known as pots de crème, and the result is ever so elegant compared to the usual desserts. —Carmell Childs, Clawson, Utah

  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup sweetened whipped cream
  • 3 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Place cranberry juice and salt in a small heavy saucepan; bring just to a boil. Remove from heat. In a small bowl, slowly whisk hot juice into eggs; return all to pan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and a thermometer reads 170°, 2-3 minutes.
  2. Place egg mixture, chocolate chips and vanilla in a blender; let stand 2 minutes. Cover and process until smooth. Pour into 6 dessert dishes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, covering when completely cooled.
  3. Place cranberries in a small food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl; toss with sugar. Top each serving with cranberries, whipped cream and almonds.
