Chocohotopots

 

When I was at Jennie’s house last month she made these wonderful chocolate wonders! I only had a bite, but oh my gosh were these yummy! They are super simple to make and they can cook while you’re eating dinner! Chauncey made some the other night and they were wonderful! If you get a chance stop by my daughter Jennie’s blog Tuffet, she has amazing recipes!

Chocohotopots

adapted from Feast by Nigella Lawson

serves 4

1 stick plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus some for buttering the ramekins

4 oz semisweet chocolate (I used Ghiradelli 60% cacao chips)

2 eggs

3/4 cup superfine sugar (you can just buzz regular, granulated sugar around in your food processor for this, just be careful it doesn’t turn to powdered sugar! Do it in 2-3 second pulses.)

3 tablespoons flour

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Butter four 2/3 cup ramekins.

In the microwave (in 30 second bursts) melt the chocolate and butter. Set aside to cool a bit.

In a medium bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar and flour.

Beat in the cooled chocolate mixture.

Bake for about 20 minutes, the tops will be cooked and a bit crackly.

Remove the ramekins to a small dessert plate and watch yourself, the ramekins will be HOT!!!
