Oftentimes, we may have a hard time understanding a dish’s popularity. Like last week’s holiday cookie craving. Who saw that one coming? Well, this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, Food Network Magazine‘s French Chocolate Pots de Crème, needs no explanation.

If there’s anything we love, it’s chocolate. Lots of it. As athletes skitter across our televisions on a nightly basis, there’s no better time to curl up on the couch with a little pot of custard in your lap. Each one is brimming with bittersweet chocolate and all things fluffy and light. Really, there’s nothing like submerging a spoon into something so rich and, well, it beats running the 100-meter dash.
