For the custard pots, place chocolate in a bowl. Bring cream, milk and rind to the boil and pour over chocolate.

Divide among ramekins and bake in a bain-marie* at 150°C for 30–35 minutes or until the centre is slightly wobbly. Allow to cool completely then chill until cold.  For the pecan fingers, finely chop ¼ of the nuts and reserve remainder. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the chopped nuts and stir in the flour in 2 batches. Press mixture into lined baking tray, inserting remaining nuts in rows and bake at 180°C for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and cut into fingers. Serve with the custards.
