Makes: 8
 
Ingredients
Clafouti:
  • 1 cup whole milk, at room temperature
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Nestlé DelightFulls Milk Chocolate Morsels with Caramel Filling, divided into ¾ cup and ¼ cup
Topping:
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ vanilla bean, seeds scraped into cream
  • ½ cup dulce de leche
  • ½ cup chopped almonds, preferably Marcona, but toasted whole natural or blanched will suffice
Instructions
  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400°F. Butter and sugar 8, ½-cup shallow gratin dishes, then place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Place milk, flour, melted butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt in blender and buzz on high until very well blended.
  3. Divide batter in prepared cups. Sprinkle about ¾ cup of the morsels in the cups, dividing evenly. You will see some on the surface and some will sink; that’s fine.
  4. Place in oven to bake for about 15 to 20 minutes; meanwhile make whipped cream. Whip the heavy cream, honey and vanilla bean until soft peaks form; set aside in refrigerator until needed.
  5. Clafouti are done when puffed, very lightly golden and the set. A toothpick will test clean.
  6. Top each Clafouti with a bit of dulce de leche and whipped cream, sprinkle with nuts and remaining morsels. Serve immediately.
