Brit Decor: Tempting Treats

Yes, yes and yes! These delectable little hot chocolate pots make for the perfect after-dinner finale, an indulgent Sunday afternoon treat or simply a quick fix for one of those chocolate craving moments (we all have these don't we?)

Apart from the rich and heavenly chocolaty taste, what I also love is just how cute these little puddings look. I prefer to alternate between using mismatching vintage pots & tea-cups and rolling out matching contemporary earthenware pots in chalky neutrals. Both looks have equal impact and are guaranteed to look impressive.

The recipe itself is so quick and easy to make that in no time at all you will be serving up 5 pots of sheer indulgence. 

How to make:
- Pre-heat the oven to around 200 degrees. Break the dark chocolate up into small pieces and along with the chopped butter, add to a bowl suspended over simmering water to melt. 

- Using a separate bowl gently whisk the eggs and stir in the sugar and flour.
Gradually add the melted chocolate and butter into the egg mixture.

- Prepare the insides of the pots with butter before adding the mixture.
Bake for 10–12 minutes or until the tops are nearly firm (it's important that the centres remains as soft molten hot chocolate).

- Serve with a sprinkling of crumbled digestive biscuit and a single scoop of rich vanilla ice cream. Heaven!
