Molten Chocolate Pots
Servings: 5 people
Fantastic for Valentine’s Day, or at any time of the year, these little molten chocolate pots are heaven on a teaspoon.
- 125 g butter (diced plus extra for greasing (see note))
- 60 g caster sugar plus extra for dusting (see note)
- 100 g 70% chocolate broken into pieces
- 3 eggs
- Cream, vanilla ice cream or raspberries to serve (optional)
- You will also need 5x100ml ramekins
Preheat the oven to 220°C
Place the ramekins on a baking sheet.
Create a double boiler by placing a bowl over a pan of boiling water, ensuring that the base of the bowl does not touch the water.
Melt the butter and chocolate in the double boiler, stirring occasionally. Once melted, turn the heat off but leave the chocolate mixture over the heat.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together using an electric whisk, until light and thickened. This will take about 5 minutes.
Slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, beating constantly.
Give the mixture a final mix with a spatula to ensure the chocolate is thoroughly combined then divide the mixture evenly between the ramekins.
Place the ramekins into the oven and bake for 6 minutes then remove and enjoy.
