Yes, today is an important day. It is National Chocolate Day! Mmm, tasty. That means you have the perfect excuse to have some chocolate today. For me, I will indulge in a Ritter Sport bar. What about you?
And in honor of that, here is a tasty chocolate recipe:
Morton’s of Chicago Godiva Hot Chocolate Cake
Source: Morton’s of Chicago, Phoenix, Arizona
Seek out Godiva chocolate liqueur in the small, 3-ounce bottle, it’ll be all you need.
Butter and granulated sugar to coat pan
8 ounces semisweet chocolate squares
1 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon Godiva chocolate liqueur
5 egg yolks
5 whole eggs
2 cups confectionersâ€™ sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and generously coat an 8-inch soufflÃ© dish with butter, then dust with granulated sugar.
Melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler. Stir in chocolate liqueur. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and whole eggs with an electric mixer set at low speed. Pour chocolate-butter mixture into bowl while beating.
In a medium bowl, sift the confectioner’s sugar and flour together. Gradually add this to the chocolate mixture. Mix at high speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Pour cake mixture into soufflÃ© dish. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake tests done with a wooden pick.
Serve hot with ice cream and berries.
