Chocohotopots

Chocohotopots created by Juenessa

This is a must try dessert! It is tender, rich and oh so fudgey on the inside. I halved the recipe and cooked it in a 15 ounce oven-safe dish. It turned out absolutely perfect AND delicious! Recipe courtesy of Nigella Lawyson from her television show, Nigella Feasts.

    I made these as soon as I saw Nigella make them! This is the easiest and BEST dessert EVER!!! I actually take the butter and chocolate and microwave it for 30 seconds and stir until it is all melted. I take it out and let it cool then I just add everything to that mix so I only dirty ONE bowl (I hate doing dishes) and they turn out exactly how they did when I did it the way the recipe states! It was already a super easy dessert...but by microwaving and just throwing everything in there it's even easier lol I even make single serve ones when my husband works late...except then I crack one egg in a bowl, mix quick, and add half to the mix. So easy, great to serve to guests...A must!

    We love these! So simple to make-i melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over hot water and do the rest in the blender. Great for when you have unexpected visitors for dinner

    I saw Nigella make these on T.V. and immediately printed off the recipe and made them the next day. They are excellent, soft, gooey and incredibly delicious. The only change I made was to use 6 ramekins, as mine were smaller than the ones suggested in the recipe.Thanks for posting this and so many other amazing recipes Juenessa!!
