Ingredients

  • 3

    cups whipping cream

  • 1

    cinnamon stick

  • 1

    dried ancho chili with seeds stemmed, chopped

  • 1

    pinch ground cumin

  • 1/3

    cup sugar plus

  • 6

    teaspoons sugar

  • 6

    ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chopped (do not use unsweetened)

  • 6

    large egg yolks

  • 1/2

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients and 1/3 cup sugar in heavy large saucepan and bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth. Whisk egg yolks in large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in hot chocolate mixture. Divide custard among eight 3/4-cup custard cups or soufflé dishes. Place cups in heavy large baking pan. Add enough hot water to pan to come halfway up sides of cups. Bake custards until almost set in center, about 35 minutes. Remove cups from water and cool completely. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Preheat broiler. Mix remaining 6 teaspoons sugar and ground cinnamon in small bowl. Sprinkle sugar mixture over custards. Broil until sugar melts and caramelizes, watching carefully and turning often, about 2 minutes. (Can be made 2 hours ahead. Refrigerate.) Transfer to plates and serve. This recipe yields 8 servings.
