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.
