This is my favorite dessert to serve for a special occasion. It tastes and looks fancy, but what I love about this dessert is that I can throw it together, pop it in the oven and serve it up hot for my guests right after dinner.
A disclaimer for my old timer readers. I have posted this before. But it is so good that on behalf of Cielo Carnival I thought it deserved a redo post!
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.
