(10) Pot au Chocolat with Brandy Snap and Whipped Cream

Another dish from my Gu Cookbook. These were REALLY easy! Only problem was the 100ml is a little bit too big, as these are really rich and creamy, so we ended up sharing these with our respective partners.

Note to self: make smaller next time!

I also have another shot without the cream, which my boyfriend prefers as he thinks that the cream means there is too much white. What do you think?
Love all the white and texture of the product inside the cup.

I like the cram there...gives a different tone of white. Different texture too. What is a Gu cookbook? This looks so good!

@espyetta Thank you! Gu is a brand over here in the UK selling chocolate puddings and stuff. Tend to be very expensive, but so, so, so good (and bad at the same time!) They've brought out a cookbook based entirely on chocolate, but with some savoury dinners as well. Only tried two recipes so far (this and the chocolate and macadamia brownies I posted on the 12th), but they have come out brilliantly, with no tweaking!

@miley89 That's ok. I got the email telling me what your comment said :) This is just a white sheet. I set it up right next to the window on the left and a silver reflector on the right. The camera was on a tripod, so I could set it up and check the histogram on the live view to make sure none of the highlights were blown out. Thanks for the comment!
