Show Us Your Life - Favorite Dessert Recipe

**This is a re-post from about a year ago...it's so good, it's worth reading again though! :)  I am super pumped that I will have the real thing in a few weeks!

Now, if you're read my blog before, you know that my absolute favorite food IN THIS WORLD is Warm Chocolate Melting Cake on Carnival Cruises.  If someone came up to me and told me I had 10 minutes to live and I could pick 1 more thing to eat, it would be this.




I KNOW.

So after we got home from our first cruise, I looked up the recipe to this.  Turns out Carnival releases how to make it...in batches of like 500 servings.  So I found where some person (with a lot more time than me) has done all of the calculations to get it down to 4 servings!  Here it is:

8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips
2 sticks butter
7 eggs (room temperature)
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour


First, set up a double boiler.  All you do is simmer water and set a bowl on top.


Make sure the water touches the bowl.  Next, add the butter and chocolate/peanut butter chips.  Simmer until melted...





...a little bit more than this.







Mix together flour, eggs, and sugar in a bowl (with an electric mixer).

(Yes, there's still hot sauce on my mixer from my buffalo chicken dip.  Don't hate.)

Mix together the egg mixture and the chocolate mixture.  Pour into four greased ramekins.

(These came with my Corningware set.)

Bake at 375 degrees for 15-30 minutes.  Now, I also make a really simple raspberry sauce for mine.  You just mix together raspberry preserves and a teeny tiny bit of water (don't you love my scientific measurements?).

Microwave 10-15 seconds.



After that, you can take pictures of your precious helper while you wait (not required, but sure is fun).

They should come out looking like this.

Add the raspberry sauce and ice cream of your choice!

My husband isn't a big chocolate fan, which is how I found out that you can use any kind of chocolate-like chips (white, dark, or peanut butter).  He likes the peanut butter one the best.


Enjoy!
