- Divide chocolate chips among 6 ramekins or cups. Heat cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla, stirring or whisking several times. Heat on medium heat for 20 minutes, being sure NOT to boil.
- In medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until frothy. When frothy, continue whisking and add in a steady stream of the heated cream. Whisk to combine and pour back into saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. This takes some time, about 30 minutes. Stir in another teaspoon vanilla.
- Divide mixture among ramekins, pouring over chocolate chips.
- Set ramekins in a baking dish with 2" sides. Fill dish with hot water half way up sides of ramekins. Bake in oven at 350° F for 25-30 minutes, just until custard is set. Let cool, then cover and chill for 3 hours. Just before serving, sprinkle brown sugar over each one and broil in the oven under low heat until sugar carmelizes. Garnish with mint and chocolate chips. Serve and enjoy!
