A quick and easy recipe that doesn’t even need a mixer!!

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350*F) Fan.
  • Add the chocolate and butter to a saucepan and cook over a low heat. Mix with a spatula until the chocolate melts and becomes smooth and creamy (the mixture can also be prepared in a bain marie or water bath. Also in the microwave for 1 ½  – 2 minutes).
  • In a bowl, combine the eggs, egg yolks, icing sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Mix well with a hand wire until the sugar has melted.
  • Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and continue mixing with a spatula for 1-2 minutes.
  • Last, add the flour and mix well until all the ingredients have become fully incorporated.
  • Grease 6 metallic baking cups and dust with some cocoa powder.
  • Fill the first 2 cups 2/3 of the way with the mixture. Use a spoon or piping bag.
  • Fill the other 4 cups half way with the mixture. 
  • Add 1 teaspoon of peanut butter to the center of 2 of the cups. 1 teaspoon per cup. Press down on the peanut butter gently.
  • Add 1 teaspoon dulce de leche to the other 2 cups. Press down on it gently.
  • Top them off with the rest of the chocolate mixture , filling each one 2/3 of the way, total.
  • Transfer baking cups to a baking pan. Place on the top oven rack and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • When you remove them from the oven they may seem undercooked in the center. Not to worry! This is how they should be. Let them rest in the baking cups for a few seconds. Turn out onto a serving platter and serve with ice cream, melted chocolate and cocoa powder.
