{recipe} Chocohotopots

Yesterday I found myself in need of a chocolately dessert, but I didn't want to run out to the grocery store. So...I broke out my go to recipe for Chocohotopots (by Nigella Lawson)! They are amazing, you will die. The recipe is really simple as well, you only need 5 ingredients (and 4 ramekins.)

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, with 60 percent cocoa solids
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Special equipment: 4 (2/3 to 1-cup capacity) ramekins
  1. Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Butter the ramekins with some butter (not from the full stick).
  3. Melt the dark chocolate and 1 stick butter, then set aside to cool a little.
  4. Mix the eggs with the sugar and flour with a hand whisk and beat in the cooled butter/chocolate mixture. 
  5. Divide the mixture between the 4 buttered ramekins. 
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, by which time the tops will be cooked and cracked and the chocolate gooey underneath.
  7. Then let cool and enjoy!!! :D
