Cooking Instructions

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over a low heat or very slowly in a microwave oven, stirring until silky in texture. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Spoon into 6 demitasse cups.

Cover the base of a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Place the puddings inside. Cover and steam for 8 to 10 minutes, until the puddings are cooked on top and well puffed, but soft and liquid at the bottom.

Remove from the heat and serve immediately with a chocolate truffle on top.
