Cuisine: Chocolate
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 6 room temperature eggs, beaten until tripled in size (about five minutes)
  • BERRY GLAZE
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ tbsp cornstarch
  • 1½ cups of your favorite berries, frozen or fresh (If you use fresh fruit, add 2-3 tbsp of water.)
  • CHOCOLATE GANACHE GLAZE (OPTIONAL)
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Butter a 8x8 baking dish and then line it with foil and butter the foil. Set aside.
  3. Fill a 9x13 pan about ⅓-1/2 full of water. Set aside
  4. In a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate chips together.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs for about five minutes like mentioned in the ingredients' list. They will be about triple in size when ready.
  6. Remove the melted chocolate from the double boiler and let cool slightly.
  7. Fold chocolate mixture (1 cup at a time) into the egg mixture.
  8. Pour mixture into foiled and buttered 8x8 baking dish. Place 8x8 baking dish into the 9x13 pan of water and carefully place it in the preheated 425-degree oven.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees. After ten minutes, turn off oven and leave chocolate dessert in there for 5 minutes.
  10. Remove dessert from oven and place on cooling rack.
  11. At this point, you can pour a chocolate glaze over the dessert...or you could wait until it cools and add it then.
  12. To make the chocolate glaze, heat the ¼ heavy cream in the microwave for 45-60 seconds or until nice and hot. Add the chocolate chips and stir until nice and smooth. Evenly spread over the Chocolate Dessert.
  13. Allow to cool for a couple of hours and then place in fridge for at least 2-3 hours.
  14. Make berry glaze while dessert is cooling or in the fridge.
  15. Stir sugar and cornstarch together in a small saucepan. Add berries (and water if using fresh berries) and stir while it cooks on medium heat. When sauce comes to a simmer, keep stirring and turn heat down to medium-low. Once sugars are all dissolved and berries have softened, sauce will be the consistency of a light gravy. Remove from heat and cool.
  16. When dessert is cooled, turn it out onto a platter, peel foil off, pour berry glaze over it, and serve.
  17. Keep leftovers in the fridge in an air-tight container.
