I’ve been a little under the weather lately (chest cold, sore throat, fever, chills, ugh!). It’s not right to be sick when the weather is so nice outside, but to make matters worse, it seems like forever since I’ve felt good enough to bake anything.  Baking is my passion, so I am thinking about renaming my blog to “Grace’s Sad Life”.

A photo of a Baileys Chocolate Pots de Creme dessert pictured with a spoonful suspended in the air.

A close friend told me to forget that idea and instead gave me her favourite remedy to cure any cold.  She said “Just have a little shot of something that will make you feel better and warm your insides”.

That’s when I noticed the Baileys® in the pantry.

I thought to myself, “Mmm, hot chocolate with a little shot of Baileys® might just do the trick”.

Yes, I talk to myself a lot (whether I’m sick or not).

I immediately started assembling the ingredients for my hot tottie; milk, chocolate and Baileys® and that’s when I had a vision (talking to myself and hallucinations? I must really be sick!).  These hot tottie ingredients turned my thoughts immediately to pots de crème.

I could make a quick and easy chocolate dessert with very little effort and I could kill two birds with one stone (get better while scratching my baking itch).

Can you say three words?  Dee Lish Us!  Wow, silky, creamy chocolate with a twist of Baileys®!  These were incredible, especially warm out of the oven.

Did it help with the cold?  Of course not!  But it did help me to forget about it, even if, it was only for just a little while.

    What’s a tottie? I know what a toddy is, but a tottie is foreign to me.

  28. Grace Says:

    It is the same as a toddy, just a different spelling.
