easy lindt lindor truffle pot de cremes

Valentine’s Day is sneaking up on us again.

How in the world does January go by so quickly each year? I feel like I blink and the entire month is gone.

We don’t normally do anything huge on Valentine’s Day, but we do like to either go out for a nice meal or make something special/different at home. I mean, it is the anniversary of our first date, so we definitely have to do something out of the ordinary.

In past years, we’ve gone to our favorite local restaurants and last year we made paella at home, which was awesome! We started with some Spanish wine, olives, and cheese, and watched a movie after dinner. Most nights, I’d go for that over a dinner out.

As of right now, I have no idea what we’re going to be doing this year! Probably picking something new to make at home for dinner….maybe putting a crib together? Who knows?

But I do know what’s probably going to be on the menu for dessert.

Ever since I first made these easy pot de cremes, I can’t stop thinking about them! They’re everything I love about pudding and creme brulee without the majority of the work. And when Lindt contacted me about coming up with a Valentine’s dessert using their Lindt LINDOR Truffles, I knew this would be the perfect dish.

Nick and I love the Lindt LINDOR truffles and have been known to put away a bag of them pretty easily. I love that the centers always seem a few degrees colder than the shell (how do they DO that?) and how smooth and melty they are. They really are the perfect little bite of chocolate.

For this campaign, we were challenged to come up with a Valentine’s recipe using Lindt LINDOR truffles and showing off the #LINDORmelt, aka their super smooth melting ability.

And that’s the best thing about this recipe! That’s basically all you’re doing – melting. And pouring. And then just waiting for the little pot de cremes to set up. So easy!

And even though I’m addicted to these for lots of reasons, I think my favorite thing about them is that you can whip them up in a few minutes, let them work their magic in the fridge, and they’re ready whenever you are! If your Valentine’s Day will be hectic until dinner, you can make these a few days ahead and just let them hang out in the fridge until you’re ready to dig in. There’s not days of prep time needed.

Honestly, as long as you have a blender, some Lindor truffles, an egg, and some milk, you’re set.

Think all this fun stops with the recipe? Think again! Lindt is offering up a 75-count bag of their insanely irresistible milk chocolate Lindt LINDOR truffles for one of you, too!

To enter the giveaway, just tell me what YOUR plans are for Valentine’s Day this year! That’s it – easy!

One US resident winner will receive a 75- count bag of LINDOR milk chocolate truffles. The winner will be chosen randomly. This giveaway will run from Wednesday January 28 to Sunday February 11. Good luck! 

Easy Lindor Truffle Pot de Cremes

Looking for a new Valentine's Day dessert or just something easy to throw together for a special weeknight treat? These pot de cremes take almost no time to put together - most of the time is just spent waiting for them to set up! Easy and delicious, and totally customizable!


  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 7-8 Lindt LINDORMilk Chocolate Truffles, chopped, plus more for garnishes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brewed coffee, chilled or room temperature
  • pinch salt


  1. Heat the milk up in a small pan over medium heat until it just comes to a bubble.
  2. While the milk is heating, add the rest of the ingredients (chocolate chips, truffles, egg, sugars, coffee, salt) to a blender and, on low speed, process the mixture until the egg is beaten and the chocolates have been chopped up.
  3. Once the milk has come to a bubble, slowly pour the hot milk into the blender while it's running on low. The milk will gently cook the egg and melt the chocolate. Keep the blender running on low until you've added all the milk and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the pot de creme into 4 small mugs or dishes, then place in the fridge to set for at least 8 hours or overnight.

  1. These look INCREDIBLE! What a yummy treat. Perfect for Valentine’s day!!

  2. We don’t normally do anything huge on Valentines day either. Our anniversary is the 3rd of Feb haha so we celebrate then. Ooo and I LOVE lindor truffles, they are so good and I am totally making these pot de cremes asap!

  3. These look AMAZING!!! I think we’ll have a nice meal at home with our boys. I should start looking for a fun activity/craft. :)

  4. We make a special dinner at home on Valentine’s, usually something too decadent for every day consumption. This would make a fabulous dessert to end our meal.

  5. This looks wonderful! I can’t wait to make it for my husband for V-Day! We served Lindt dark chocolate truffles at our wedding in January 8 years ago – he’ll love it.

  6. my boyfriend and i are probably making dinner together! our favorite thing to do :)

  7. I’m hoping I can convince my husband to help me whip up a pot of seafood gumbo. :-) I know that doesn’t sound very fancy, but I crave it like crazy in the winter (and we hardly ever make it)!

  8. We are staying in for a nice dinner. There is no way I am eating out on Valentines day on a Saturday night. Love this dessert!

  9. Maybe I will make this! I would love to go to brunch somewhere lovely.

  10. I am whipping up a French cuisine inspired dinner for the hubs AND making these pot de cremes! Can’t wait!

  11. For Valentines this year I am learning to snowboard and taking a friend-couple with me!

  12. My DH has requested red velvet, so I guess I’ll be making a cake!.

  13. Lindor truffles are the best, (after mine that is – LOL). Love pot de creme and that you topped them with these creamy truffles. Now I must stop licking my screen.

  14. These look so good! My husband has been deployed most of the year, so he will finally be home then to spend the day with a very pregnant me on the couch!

  15. These look delicious, Brandi! We may take the kids skiing and then home for a big pot of chili. I don’t like to eat out on such a crazy restaurant holiday!

  16. I think we are going to make dinner together and pop in a movie.

  17. Since I am part of the ‘All the Single Ladies’ club (thanks Beyoncé), I plan on staying home this year and I’m OK with that. I will be living vicariously through Netflix and maybe even Skyping with my son who is stationed in Japan. (It will be 2/15/15 there so I won’t be crashing his Valentine’s Day)! ;)

  18. My husband and I don’t go out to eat very often because it gets expensive, but this year we have 75 dollars worth of Olive Garden gift cards- so we plan to order whatever we want and enjoy a carefree dinner date!

  19. We will be celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary in June, so I think we will celebrate Valentine’s Day this year by cooking a special meal together(instead of just me cooking it:)) and uncorking a bottle of champagne.

  20. My hubby and I go to a fantastic hole-in-the-wall, family-owned Italian place that makes all their pasts in-house. It’s fabulous, definitely the best Italian restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. But since we’ve moved, it’s an hour and a half away. We’ve gone there every Valentine’s Day since we met, six years ago, so we’re braving the 3-hour round trip to go again. <3
    Lindt is my favorite chocolate! I love their truffles, and their petit desserts are to die for. I can't wait to try this recipe!

  21. My husband or I usually buy some sort of chocolate for each other and our daughter. Valentine’s day will be busy this year with my daughter’s riding lesson and band concert on that day. My husband’s birthday is earlier in the month so the 14th is kind of an afterthought. But munching on Lindt while watching her ride would a great reminder to him of how much having him as my hubby for the last 26 years means!

  22. My hubby anD I Will spend a cozy evening at home. Prob grill a couple steaks. Would love to win the chocolates as we both are chocoholics. Lol

  23. My plans for Valentine’s Day is to focus on the two of us – something that with the troubling stresses of our live-in adult children, my double job, and some health issues we have put off. The evening will be all about us. I’m making him a filet with a port wine shallot sauce and roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus and probably this dessert (I couldn’t come up with anything til now!). No electronics. Just the two of us.

  24. I have no Valentine this year besides my little dog. :-( Maybe I will eat Lindor truffles while she gnaws on a bone? :-)

  25. We are touring the maternity floor of the hospital in the morning. Then we’ll go out for a nice dinner together, I’m excited for Valentine’s Day!

  26. We celebrate at home and avoid the crowds. Making balsamic glazed salmon.
