Did somebody say chocolate?

Do you remember the Food Network show Cooking with Nigella?  She used to make this tasty looking number called Chocohotopots.  She made it look easy-but mine never seem to come out well. 

When I saw a similar recipe called "Baked Fudge" over at The Pioneer Woman I knew I had to give it another go.

There are no words for how good this was!  My husband even took a bite and declared "You've done it.  You have made the chocohotopots!"


■2 whole Eggs

■1 cup Sugar

■2 Tablespoons (heaping) Cocoa

■2 Tablespoons Flour

■½ cups Butter, Melted

■1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation Instructions:

Preheat oven to 300 to 325 degrees.

Beat eggs until light in color. Beat in sugar until just combined. Add cocoa, flour, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix gently until well combined.
Pour batter into four large ramekins or one 8-inch square baking dish. Set ramekins or pan into a larger pan halfway full of water.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is firm but not set. Toothpick should come out…not clean, but mixture should not be overly runny. If you pull it out of the oven and have second thoughts, stick it back in for ten more minutes.

Serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream; whatever makes your skirt fly up.

  1. These look devine. Like the chocolate Molten Lava cakes back in the day.
