Cuisine American
Servings 4 8 oz. jars

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips (3/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup butter 1 stick
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract (Use less for a milder peppermint taste.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Butter or spray six 6 oz. ramekins. I used five 8 oz. ball jars.
  • Cut the butter into pieces and combine with chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Heat on high for 1 min.
  • Stir until well combined and all chocolate is melted.
  • Beat eggs, egg yolks and sugar for 5 min.
  • Add flour and mix.
  • Add chocolate mixture, peppermint extract and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Place prepared ramekins/jars on a cookie sheet. Fill with batter.
  • Bake until edges are set but centers still jiggle like jello.
  • 6 ramekins = 9 -11 min.
  • 5 jars = 13 - 15 min.
  • Garnish with fresh mint and serve with whipping cream on top.

I use Baker's Joy to prepare my baking pans.
