#Choctoberfest ~ Warm Chocolate Melting Cups

Welcome to day two of #Choctoberfest! See the Welcome Post here to check out all the fantastic bloggers participating this year, and see the INCREDIBLE giveaway linked towards the end of that post (SO much good stuff!)

I can't wait to see what everyone is sharing today!

Today I'm sharing Warm Melting Cups - o.m.g.!! These are insanely divine. And really they come together pretty quickly - they bake up in no time in their water bath and you have a mess of ooey gooey chocolate in no time. These are best baked up in small ramekins (I used what I had - so that was about 5-6 larger sized ramekins which were for sharing!)

Warm Chocolate Melting Cups from Taste of Home

3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon brewed coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Egg Mixture
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 large egg white, room temperature

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place cooking-spray coated ramekins in a 9x13 baking dish (use more than one dish if needed, depending on the size of your ramekins).
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the 3/4 cup sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Whisk to combine. Whisk in the water and turn heat to medium to medium-high. Bring to a low boil; simmer a minute or two until mixture thickens.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips, coffee, and vanilla extract. Whisk together until smooth. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, place the eggs and extra egg white. Whip for a minute or two on high speed until foamy. Add in the sugar and whip until slightly thickened and lemon colored - another minute or two.
  5. Temper egg mixture by adding in a few tablespoons of the warm chocolate mixture, and whisking. Repeat once or twice. Fold the tempered egg mixture into the warm chocolate mixture until well blended. 
  6. Fill your ramekins about 1/2 to 3/4 full. Pour 1 inch of boiling water into the pan, around the outsides of the ramekins. Place in preheated oven and bake 22-25 minutes, or until centers are just set.
  7. Serve immediately for warm, gooey centers. Garnish with a little whipped cream and / or strawberries if desired.
