- Grease six 3/4 cup ramekins with the 2 tsp of buttr. Coat bottom and sides of each ramekin with cocoa, discarding the excess.
- Heat the 2/3 cup butter and chocolate in a small heavy saucepan on lowest heat, stirring often, until almost melted. Do not overheat.

WHAT A GREAT CHOCOLATE FIX for a -holic like me! Was gonna share this with a neighbor, but then decided to keep it all to ourselves! Great chocolate flavor, & absolutely wonderful when I served it with some frozen vanilla yogurt AND a homemade cherry sauce! Thanks for a very nice treat!
