Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave oven or in a bowl over hot water, then leave to cool slightly.
  3. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar using an electric mixer until the mixture is pale. Add the melted chocolate, then the cream, beating constantly.
  4. Pour the mixture into individual gratin dishes or ramekins and bake for about 30 minutes. Keep a close eye on them -- the creamy mixture should be firm at the edges but not yet set in the middle.
  5. Remove the ramekins from the oven and leave to cool before placing them in a refrigerator for several hours.
  6. Just before serving, set the oven to broil, sprinkle the cream-filled ramekins with brown sugar, caramelize them under the broiler and then return them to a cool place.
