I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Spiced Chocolate Pots de Creme with Candied Bacon and Maple Cream" from kmartinelli. It says:
"Pour the custard into 6 to 8 ramekins, pots de creme cups, or other small oven-safe vessels. Transfer the ramekins to a roasting or baking pan. Pour in hot water until it comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, poke two holes in opposite corners, and carefully put in the oven." I've never heard of putting plastic and then baking them. Won't it melt?
