This creamy, rich French Chocolate Custard will satisfy your chocolate craving! It's a great make-ahead dessert to serve to company.
Preheat oven to 350. In a saucepan, heat half-and-half and chocolate chips, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool slightly.
Beat eggs, 1/3 cup of sugar, and salt; gradually stir into chocolate mixture. Pour into 6 ungreased 6-ounce custard cups.
Place cups in baking pan on oven rack. Pour boiling water into pan within 1/2 inch of tops of cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove cups from water; cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate 4-24 hours.
Beat whipping cream and 1 Tbsp sugar in a chilled bowl until stiff; fold in brandy. Top each custard with whipped cream.
