‘Hot Chocolate Pots’

Here’s the recipe for my ‘Hot Chocolate Pots’. They are best served warm with some vanilla ice-cream or whipped double cream and some fresh fruit. They are still gooey in the centre when you take them out of the oven and taste even better if you push a square of milk chocolate into the centre just before serving. Depending on the size of your ramekins this mixture will make between 6 and 12 ‘Hot Chocolate Pots’. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 180g butter
  • 4 eggs
