Incredibly lazy chocolate bliss

24 Nov

This is, sadly, not the sort of chocolate that you can put together in 5 minutes in the middle of the night when you have a chocolate craving. They need at least two hours to chill, which is really the only thing that detracts from how amazing they are. If you’ve already planned to much for a dinner party and have no dessert, though, these would be amazing. Or because it’s… oh, Tuesday, say.

You’ll need some chocolate chips, a few eggs, a flavored liqueur like grand mariner (I went with a nice minty rumplemize here for a mint/chocolate thing), and hot coffee or cocoa. Whipped cream is optional, but a nice addition.

I only have two eggs instead of 4, and smaller amounts of everything else, because I’m only doing a batch for two people. Scale as necessary for the number of chocolate fiends you have. Then put the chocolate chips, eggs, booze, and salt in a blender. Pulse for a few seconds until it’s all combined.

Then pour the coffee in a thin stream through a hole in the lid while the blender’s on. Personally I didn’t do that this time, because it was late, but I should have. Don’t make my mistake, it works out better if you follow the recipe in this case.

Blend until smooth, pour into small mason jars, ramekins, cups, whatever you like. Chill for a few hours until they set. Top with whipped cream, and enjoy.
