I put the leftover crème in the fridge for one night in a glass bowl with cling wrap over it and it was chilled, but did not set. A quick stir with a serving spoon brought the crème back to life with virtually no difference from the night before. This recipe size did not last as long as the chocolate torte, so I'll have to double the recipe next time. I liked the chocolate torte with more topping than the recipe pictured.
You can add a small amount of shaved white chocolate (no more an an ounce/30g or so) at the end of the cooking process prior to chilling. It will likely change the texture of the sauce, especially if served very cold--but if it tempers a bit before service, it can be stirred and brought back. The white chocolate will add sweetness and richness, but probably not impact the overall flavor profile. I'm curious now! Happy Cooking, Enjoy!
Typically one would use less granulated sugar then icing sugar; however, since it is such a small amount of sugar, you should be okay doing a straight substitution. With that said, I suggest that you taste the crème Anglaise once you put it back into the pot and test it to see if it is sweet enough for you. Hope that helps. Cheers!
Creme Anglaise can be served warm or cold, it just depends on what you are serving it with and how you like it. As for how long to chill it, it just needs to be refrigerated until it has cooled completely, which will vary depending on the amount you made, the dish you stored it in, your refrigerator and whether or not you stirred it during refrigeration. Hope that helps. Cheers!
