This Cooking Light version of a sinful dessert is wonderful. Very intense flavor, and easy to make

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cooking spray
  • 12 cup sugar, plus
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 14 cup 2% low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, plus
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 12 tablespoons butter
  • 12 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg white
  • 8 teaspoons semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Lightly coat 4 (2-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray, and sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon sugar into each of the ramekins, shaking and turning to coat. Set prepared ramekins aside.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, milk, and cocoa in a small saucepan, stirring well with a whisk. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook 30 seconds or until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add the butter and 1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate. Stir until the chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Cool chocolate mixture 10 minutes.
  4. Add flour, vanilla, salt, and egg white to chocolate mixture, stirring with a whisk just until blended. Spoon 2 tablespoons chocolate mixture into each prepared ramekin, and top each with 2 teaspoons chocolate chips. Divide the remaining chocolate mixture evenly among ramekins, spreading to cover the chocolate chips. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until barely set. Cool for 10 minutes. Invert onto dessert plates. Serve warm.

This is a wonderful dessert. Very chocolatey and quick to prepare too! The only change I made was use regular chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet for the filling. I baked it for 20 mins as stated but the outside wasn't as moist (it wasn't dry either) and the inside wasn't as gooey as I expected it to be so next time I shall bake it for 15 mins and see how that turns out. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe, I definitely will be making it again! Made for Camera-less Chef Game #5, '08.

Valentines Day dessert perfection. My beau is a bakery manager for a major grocery chain - not to mention his first true love is chocolate (to my endless dismay) and he loved this!
