Sometimes you don't want to make a whole batch of brownies and end up scoffing the lot (not often, but sometimes...) You just want that sweet chocolate hit for one night only. These Chocolate Brownie Pots for Two are the perfect solution! Plus they are made in one bowl, only need six ingredients and have a warm gooey centre that is just heavenly!
They are also ideal if you're planning a romantic dinner and you're looking for an easy yet impressive dessert. Think of them like a cheat's chocolate fondant! They are sure to impress your partner on Valentine's Day, for an anniversary celebration, a special birthday meal or date night. I served the Chocolate Brownie Pots with ice cream, but they are also amazing with fresh berries, caramel sauce, whipped cream... they're so versatile!
How to make Chocolate Brownie Pots for Two
In a mixing bowl, melt the dark chocolate and butter together in a microwave. Let it cool for 10 minutes, then whisk in the egg and sugar.
Whisk in the flour and fold in the chocolate chips, then divide the mixture between the ramekins.
Bake the brownies for 15 minutes, leave to cool for 5 minutes, then serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
What size ramekins do you need?
The ramekins I used were 9cm in diameter and 5cm deep. This is quite a common and generic size of ramekin, so if you don't already own them, they should be easy enough to get hold of.
Can you make the Chocolate Brownie Pots without ramekins?
Yes! You can also put the mixture in a cupcake tin, it will fill 4 of the holes. Make sure to grease it very well, or use silicone cupcake cases. I don't recommend paper cupcake cases as they will not peel off easily and they will get stuck to the brownie. Or you can put all of the mixture into a small baking tin or dish, then when it's baked, grab a spoon each and share!
What can you serve the Chocolate Brownie Pots with?
- Ice cream, whipped cream, pouring cream or custard
- Fresh fruit like raspberries, strawberries and blueberries
- Drizzled with melted Nutella, melted Biscoff, peanut butter or salted caramel sauce
- A combination of the above!
Tips for making the Chocolate Brownie Pots for Two:
- I added milk chocolate chips to the brownies, you can leave these out, or swap them for white or dark chocolate chips.
- I've suggested a baking time based on how they came out in my oven, remember that all ovens run slightly differently so you may need slightly less or more time to get the right texture. A good excuse for a trial run if you ask me!
- If you don't have light brown sugar, you can use caster sugar (superfine sugar) instead.
