This weekend has been all about paper writing for me. I am on page 16 which is pretty good considering. One of my friends wanted to stop by for a visit and given that he had just broken up with his girlfriend I figured a home baked dessert was called for. Given the lack of time for fancy recipes I fell back on an old standby, Nigella’s Choco-Hoto-pots.

Chocolate makes everything better

Chocolate makes everything better


Butter for ramekins
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup superfine sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Melt the butter and chocolate and set aside. Mix up the eggs, sugar and flour. Add the chocolate mixture once cooled and mix together. Add the white chocolate chips. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes in buttered ramekins. Tops should be shiny and cracked and underneath it should be nice and gooey.

As there were only two of us I halved the recipe and since I didn’t have any superfine sugar I just food processed some granulated sugar. Yummy Chocolate goodness.

  1. You know, I REALLY wish I hadn’t seen these – really. My daughter loves making Nigella recipes so if it’s okay with you I’m giving her the recipe to try. We’ll link back to you, of course. Thanks!

  2. I just made similar ones this weekend. they are truly dangerous as it’s easy to scale down the recipe for just 2 people.

  3. Wow! That looks incredible! I hope the chocolate was able to soothe him a bit. You’re a good friend!
