    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 5
    ½ c. plus 1/3 cup Hy-Vee semisweet chocolate chips, divided
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee heavy whipping cream
    1 tbsp. plus 1/4 cup Hy-Vee salted butter, divided, plus additional for greasing
    2 Hy-Vee large eggs
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
    Halo Top light vanilla bean ice cream
    Hy-Vee baking cocoa, for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Small saucepan
    • 5 (4-oz. each) ramekins
    • Medium bowl
    • Electric mixer


    1. For filling, combine 1/2 cup chocolate chips, whipping cream, and 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan. Stir and melt over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool and refrigerate for 2 hours.

    2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Set aside.

    3. Butter and lightly flour five 4-oz. ramekins; set aside. Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on medium for 5 minutes. Beat in flour and chocolate-butter mixture. Spoon 1-inch of batter in each ramekin.

    4. Divide chilled filling into five portions; roll into balls. Place a ball in center of batter in each ramekin. Divide remaining batter among ramekins to cover filling.

    5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Using a knife, loosen cakes from sides of ramekins. Invert onto dessert plates. Serve immediately topped with ice cream, if desired. Garnish with cocoa, if desired.
