Flavor HD’s Hannah Stanley shows Dane Neal how to make a delicious chocolate dessert for their Valentine’s Day Recipe Series. Check out the recipe inspired by Flavor HD’s friend Marc Sievers.

Warm Chocolate Pots de Creme

Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – 5 ounces
Butter – 1 stick, unsalted, plus more for preparing ramekins
Vanilla – 2 teaspoons, pure extract
Flour – 6 tablespoons, all-purpose
Eggs – 2 extra-large eggs, AND 1 extra-large egg yolk
Kosher Salt – ¼ teaspoon
Powdered Sugar – 1 cup, plus more for dusting

Start by pre-heating the oven to 425 degrees.
Butter the interior of four 6 to 8 ounce ramekins and place on a baking dish.  Set aside.
In a heat proof bowl , over barely simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally until just melted.  Remove from heat.
Next, add the powdered sugar, salt, and vanilla.  Whisk until blended.
Slowly whisk in the eggs.
Then whisk into the chocolate mixture.
Lastly, evenly divide the batter into the prepared ramekins.  Bake for exactly 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven, dust with powdered sugar.  Allow to stand for 2 minutes before serving.
TIP: To give this dessert a little love-day punch, place a small paper doily with a heart cut from the center over each ramekin and dust with powdered sugar.  Carefully remove the doily and excess powdered sugar before serving.

TRICK:  You can actually make these ahead of time!  Bake and dust with powdered sugar. Allow to cool completely, then wrap tightly with foil and place in the refrigerator.  When it’s time to serve, remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes prior.  Discard the foil and warm in a microwave for 45 seconds.  Serve immediately.

Serves 4
