These were SO easy to make. Nigella made them on her show in like 5 minutes (minus cooking time) so I figured it wouldn't be too tough to do the same. I halved her recipe though because it was just me and my mother :)
She called them "ChocoHotoPots" because that's what her son called them, but I think that's kind of silly so I think I'm going to stick to the title "Chocolate Pots"
They were pretty delicious but next time I think I'll use semi sweet chocolate (the recipe called for dark) because they were almost too rich. They were still quite yummy though.
Recipe (makes 4 - 6 servings)
Butter for ramekins
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup superfine sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Place baking sheet in an oven preheated to 400°F/200°C. Butter four 2/3-cup ramekins and set aside. I actually find these so decadently sweet, that I use ½ cup ramekins and make 6.
2. Using a microwave oven or double boiler, melt together the semisweet chocolate and the butter. Set aside to cool.
3. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, sugar and flour. Add cooled chocolate mixture, and mix until blended. Fold in chocolate chips.
4. Divide mixture evenly among ramekins and place on baking sheet. Bake until tops are shiny and cracked and chocolate beneath is hot and gooey, about 20 minutes. Place each ramekin on a small plate with a teaspoon and serve, reminding children that ramekins and chocolate are hot.
