Original recipe makes 6 servings Change Servings


  1. Position rack in middle of oven and heat to 350 degrees F. Arrange 6 oven-proof six-ounce coffee cups or mugs in a baking or roasting pan. Melt chocolate and butter in bowl set over simmering water, whisking occasionally until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir eggs and sugar together in separate bowl over simmering water until warm to the touch. With handheld electric beater, beat 3 to 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  2. With spatula, fold eggs into chocolate mixture until light and smooth. Spoon batter into cups. Add enough very hot water to the baking pan to come halfway up sides of cups. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until tops of puddings are no longer shiny. Serve warm, topped with a dollop of whipped cream.

I used Hershey's sugar free chocolate chips, organic eggs and Splenda. So. So. Yummy. Serves six? Nope. Four. ;) The whipped cream on top? Absolutely necessary. EXCELLENT bad day treat.

Best pudding ever! It is sooo rich and chocolatey that I could only have about half a cup. I put marshmallows on top before baking and it was like a cup of hot chocolate. Yum!

Yummm. It's a little involved, but I'd say pretty worth it. I only had milk chocolate chips on hand and salted butter, but it still came out excellent. It came out a lot like a hot fudge consistency. We didn't have whipped cream, so we put a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Sooo delicious.

Perfect! Came out like a flourless chocolate cake. It was so rich, I could only eat half of it - which is just as well. Whip cream is a must. Next time I will mix in some mini-marshmallows before baking.

I can't believe this recipe hasn't received more reviews! It is one of my favorites on this site. Excellent! We cut the recipe in half and it's a nice dessert for hubby and I. It's a little rich for the kid's taste buds but that's all the better for us adults. :)
