These are 'Chocohotopots' from 'Feast' - but I cooled them quite a lot before we ate them to avoid burnt tongues, so it was more accurate to call them just 'chocopots'. (Or chocowarmopots!)

They are like runny chocolate brownies - the top looks a lot like a brownie, with soft chocolate underneath. Very easy to make, delicious, rich and filling, and everyone loved them. (I have to admit though that I'm not the hugest fan of chocolate desserts, and I'd rather just eat the chocolate un-tampered-with!)

First you melt chocolate and butter over simmering water. The recipe calls for 'semi-sweet' but I couldn't find any - I did find another type of chocolate which is a combination of milk and dark, so I used it instead.

Let the choc/butter cool down a bit, then in another bowl whisk together eggs and sugar, and add some flour. Fold the chocolate mixture in, then divide between four (I used 5) buttered ramekins or oven-proof cups. Stand the cups on a tray and cook for 20 mins at 200C.

125 g semi sweet chocolate (I used milk and dark mixture)
125 g unsalted butter, soft
2 eggs
150 g caster sugar (I used 100 g)
3 tbsp plain flour

I remember when she made these on Oprah-they looked very good. The crust at the top is like a brownie!
