This was very decadent - if you like eating chocolate chips straight out of the bag, this is the recipe for you! It's quite sweet, so I would recommend eating it with a good dallop of whipped cream. The egg mixture does curdle quite easily - I was using a double boiler and it still curdled - so i threw out the first batch and started again. This time, I cooked the egg mixture for about 3 minutes over the boiling water, removed to stir in the chocolate chips and vanilla, and then returned to the heat, stirring constantly, until the chips were completely melted. I used 4 ramekins, and they filled about 1/2 way up. Because this is so rich, I don't think I'd want a bigger serving size than that. This might even be good with whipped cream added to the mixture. Something to experiment with in the future!
