Author: Jess Smith via Inquiring Chef


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 5 oz. chocolate, shaved or finely grated (any combination will work – I used 4 oz. dark and 1 oz. milk chocolate)
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place four 4 oz Ball jars (or other small ramekins) in a deep baking dish or roasting pan. Fill the pan with water so that it reaches the middle of the jars.
  • Whisk egg yolks and vanilla together in a small mixing bowl.
  • In a small saucepan heat chocolate, sugar, cream and milk over low-medium heat. Stir constantly and continue heating just until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.
  • While chocolate is still very warm, pour chocolate mixture slowly into eggs. Whisk vigorously to combine. Mixture should be smooth. Pour into individual serving bowls.
  • Bake jars in water bath until just set, about 20 minutes. Remove cups from water and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve chilled – plain or topped with fresh whipped cream.
