Chocolate Pots de Crème

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place eggs in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk until eggs are lightly beaten.

Combine milk, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally (about 3 minutes). Add vanilla and chocolate; stir until chocolate melts.

Gradually add 1/4 cup hot milk mixture to eggs, stirring constantly with a whisk. Add egg mixture to milk mixture in pan, stirring with a whisk to combine. Pour into 8 (4-ounce) ramekins.
