Pioneer Woman's blog, I knew I had to try them. Besides being adorable, they are an easy dessert with no cooking involved. I adapted her recipe to make a few things easier, including the types of ingredients you might need.
I made this dish at our Valentine's Day dinner, and it was a hit but please be warned that this is very rich (as you might guess when you read the ingredients)! A little goes a long way, so you won't need much to feel satisfied.
- 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 4 eggs, at room temperature
- dash of salt
- splash of vanilla extract OR flavored liquer (such as Grand Marnier)
- 1 cup (8 oz) brewed coffee OR hot cocoa (the liquid must be HOT)
- powdered sugar or whipped cream (optional, for decoration)
- Place chocolate chips and 2 of the eggs in a blender. Pulse until chips are broken up.
- Add the other 2 eggs, salt, and vanilla / liquer. Blend until smooth.
- While blender is on, slowly pour a steady stream of hot cocoa / coffee into the chocolate mixture.
- Pour into ramekins or small Mason jars. Place in fridge and let set, about 2 hours.
- Before serving, decorate with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or whipped cream.
