Baked Chocolate Pudding Cups Recipe

Valentine’s Day may be over, but I say that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have more chocolate! I mean, it is a Monday after all, and that excuse is good enough for me!

So, today I thought I would share one of my favorite go-to chocolate recipes with you. It is one of my faves because it is rich and decadent while being beyond simple to put together, and is made from ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!

Baked Chocolate Pudding Cups

We call them baked puddings at our house, and they are so gooey you’ll have to agree the name fits.

The nice thing about these cups is that they are a single serving. So no dishing out dessert; it’s already dished out for you!

Since the cups are separate, you’re going to need ramekins for this recipe. They can be ceramic or glass, I’ll leave that up to you. Here’s how to make this baked chocolate pudding.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 oz chocolate chips, semisweet or bittersweet
  • 4 T unsalted butter, 1/2 stick
  • 4 T granulated sugar
  • 2 egg(s), large, yolks and whites separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • whipped cream or ice cream for serving, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place four 6- to 8-ounce ovenproof bowls on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. Place chocolate and butter in a medium microwave safe bowl and cook in microwave at 30 second intervals (stirring after each interval) until just melted.
  4. Mix in 2 tablespoons sugar, then egg yolks and vanilla. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form.
  6. Still beating, gradually add remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; beat until mixture is stiff and glossy.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, mix about 1/3 egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg-white mixture just until combined. Divide among bowls. (Puddings can be prepared in advance up to this point; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate up to 1 day.)
  8. Bake until tops are puffed and cracked but insides are still quite soft (a toothpick inserted in center will come out gooey), 20 to 25 minutes, or 25 to 30 minutes if puddings were previously refrigerated.
  9. Serve, warm or at room temperature (puddings may sink as they cool), topped with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
