a.k.a Chocolate Lava

Chocolate Dream land a.k.a Chocolate hot pots a.k.a Chocolate Lava a.k.a Instant pleasure

This is a chocolate lover’s absolute easy-to-make SOS dish. It takes about 30 minutes to make. It looks really professional, so its great even when you want to impress guests. AND, it re-heats easily.

Most importantly however, its very versatile – you can have it with ice cream, or add a drizzle of rum to it and you have a new dish!

What you need:

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup chocolate chips

1 egg

2 tbsp of flour (maida)

2 tbsp sugar

Here’s a simple 5 step procedure to making your own Chocolate lava:

Step 1:

Fill up a medium sized vessel with water and bring it to a boil. Turn the heat on low.  Now place a ceramic bowl on top of the vessel and put the chocolate chips and butter in it. Let it melt into luscious, molten chocolate.

Step 2:

In another bowl, beat the egg, add sugar and the flour and whisk it for about 2 minutes. When it reaches a thickish consistency, add the molten chocolate and stir till it becomes one.

Step 3:

Line 3 small ceramic cups with butter. Add the above mixture to the bowls leaving a 1.5 centimeter space from the top.

Step 4:

Place the bowls in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 200 ° C or until the top rises and starts cracking.

Step 5:

Cool the bowls for about 2-3 minutes, and your Chocolate Lava is ready to eat (Can’t explain the feeling when the top cracks open and the molten chocolate with all its gooey ooziness pours out. Ah, Heaven!)

P.S: Sorry about the messy pictures 😛
