Chocolate Mint Cakes
Chocolate Mint Cakes. Perfectly sized individual desserts with the yummy combination of chocolate and mint. Use ramekins or mason jars. Perfect for gift giving!
8 oz. jars
bittersweet chocolate chips
all purpose flour
(Use less for a milder peppermint taste.)
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.
