Rachael Ray Shares Mom's Chocolate Cups Recipe on the Oprah Show

Rachael Ray made another appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show yesterday – this time as part of Gayle King’s search for the best cake in America (“The Best Cake in America Revealed”). In a pre-taped segment, Rachael shared her Mom’s recipe for Chocolate Cups, which is her spin on pots de crème.

Rachael also offered advice on her best last minute gift idea:

Simple recipes make great eats and great gifts! Rachael says she likes to transform her favorite recipes into last-minute gifts that are perfect for every occasion.

First, Rachael says to choose a super simple recipe from your collection, and print out the instructions on a recipe card. Then, head to the grocery store and stock up on all the ingredients you need to make the dish. Package all the ingredients in a gift bag or reusable grocery sack, throw in an affordable bottle of wine and your present is complete!

Rachael's go-to gift can also be adapted to suit any budget and recipient. "You can take it to any level," she says. "You can get, you know, really pricey with the bottle of wine. You can even adapt it for children. Buy a nice children's cookbook and put all the ingredients for one recipe in there. … It works for literally every occasion."

I have heard of mixing the dry ingredients for cookies and giving the recipe as a gift idea, but not a dinner recipe. I wonder if you would have to limit the recipes you give to those with only dry ingredients? Otherwise, you would have to make sure the recipient opened the gift right away in order to refrigerate the fresh stuff!
