Tonight I was trying to come up with a quick and easy dessert. I wanted something chocolate and where I would be able to make them individual to each person. I was looking through my dishes and remembered I had some ramekins and thought that would be perfect. So I decided to make Chocolate Pots, a chocolate gooey cake dessert that could be paired with your favorite ice cream.
You can use any size ramekin. I used 3 ramekins for this recipe and filled them about 2/3 full. It will rise about a quarter of the amount you put into the ramekin. Note that the cook time might vary depending on the size of the ramekin and amount you put into them.
¾ Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Stick unsalted butter
¾ Cup sugar
3 T all-purpose flour
½ Cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease ramekins with butter.
In a sauce pan melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter. Stir to make sure the chocolate does not burn. When melting chocolate on the stove keep the heat set at low to help prevent burning of chocolate. Once melted remove from stove and let it cool.
In a mixing bowl, with a rubber spatula, mix together sugar, flour, and eggs. Add cooled chocolate to the mixture and stir until incorporated. Fold in milk chocolate chips.
Fill the ramekins about 2/3 of the way and bake for 20-25 minutes. You want the top to have a cracked look. The finished product will be moist and gooey in the center. Let them cool for a bit and serve warm with your favorite ice cream.
