This is it! The essential holiday dessert. You just need five simple ingredients in your pantry for tis the season. This wonderful chocolate bomb can be whipped up in quick order, from start to finish in just 30 minutes. It is so easy I can make it while visiting with guests after dinner, and serve it piping hot from the oven, with class and ease. What am I talking about?
HOT CHOCO POTS
Served with a simple scoop of your very favorite vanilla ice-cream and this does deserve the best. Use some elegant little spoons, because you want to slowly savor each little delicious chocolate laden spoonful. Warm, chocolate, rich and gooey! Kind of like a hot fudge cake, but better! Crispy on the edges, molten chocolate on the inside.
Recipe by Nigella Lawson:
Melt: over a double boiler gently, ¾ cups of semi sweet choc chips and 1 stick of soft butter (keep and eye on it, stirring) than set aside to cool
Mix: with a beater, 2 eggs, ¾ cup of sugar, 3 Tlb. of flour, I add the flour at the end
Than slowly add cooled chocolate mixture. Pour into 4 ramekins
Bake 400 for 20 minutes.
I double the recipe easily and can make smaller servings, just cut down on your baking time a little. I have served this 3x now, and I have decided 3x makes it a charm for sure.
I thought it would be fun to share. If you try it, let me know. I would love to hear your feed back. Everyone I have served it to so far loves it.
