Choco-Hoto-Pots are a decadent and delicious dessert that is perfect for chocolate lovers. These individual chocolate pots are rich, gooey, and oh-so-satisfying. They are the perfect treat for a special occasion or just when you're craving something sweet.


Choco-Hoto-Pots are a modern twist on the classic chocolate lava cake. This recipe takes the rich and indulgent flavors of a traditional lava cake and transforms them into individual pots of chocolatey goodness. The name "Choco-Hoto-Pots" comes from the combination of chocolate and the hot, gooey texture of the dessert.


How to prepare

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and place a baking sheet inside. Butter four ramekins with a capacity of 0.67 cups each, and set them aside.
  2. In a microwave oven or using a double boiler, melt the semisweet chocolate and butter together. Set the mixture aside to cool.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, and flour. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and mix until well blended. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly among the ramekins and place them on the preheated baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the tops are shiny and cracked, and the chocolate underneath is hot and gooey.
  5. Place each ramekin on a small plate, provide a teaspoon, and serve. Remind children that the ramekins and chocolate will be hot.


  • Add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of the Choco-Hoto-Pots for a sweet and salty flavor combination.
  • Mix in some chopped nuts or dried fruit for added texture and flavor.

Cooking Tips & Tricks

Serving Suggestions

Cooking Techniques

The key to making perfect Choco-Hoto-Pots is to bake them just until the tops are shiny and cracked, but the chocolate underneath is still hot and gooey.

Ingredient Substitutions

You can use dark chocolate chips instead of semisweet chocolate chips for a richer flavor. You can also use milk chocolate chips if you prefer a sweeter taste.

Presentation Ideas

Serve the Choco-Hoto-Pots in the ramekins they were baked in for a rustic and cozy presentation. You can also unmold them onto a plate and dust with powdered sugar for a more elegant presentation.

How did I get this recipe?

The memory of discovering this recipe for the first time is a treasured one. It was a warm summer day, and I was visiting my dear friend Martha in her cozy cottage by the lake. Martha was known for her delicious desserts, and on that particular day, she surprised me with a new creation she called Choco-Hoto-Pots.

As I took my first bite of the rich, gooey chocolate dessert, I knew I had to learn how to make it myself. Martha smiled at me knowingly and said, "I'll teach you the recipe, my dear. But promise me you'll make it for someone special someday."

And so, with Martha's guidance, I learned the secret to making the most decadent Choco-Hoto-Pots. The recipe was simple yet magical, combining the richness of dark chocolate with the warmth of cinnamon and a hint of spice from cayenne pepper. The result was a dessert that was both comforting and exciting, a true delight for the senses.

Over the years, I made Choco-Hoto-Pots for countless family gatherings and special occasions. Each time, it brought smiles to the faces of my loved ones, and I could see Martha's influence shining through in every bite.

But it wasn't just Martha who had a hand in shaping my love for cooking. My own mother, a talented cook in her own right, taught me the importance of using fresh, quality ingredients and cooking with love and care. She always said that the secret ingredient in any dish was the heart you put into it.

And so, as I continued to perfect my recipe for Choco-Hoto-Pots, I made sure to infuse each batch with love and memories of all the special moments shared around the table. It became a tradition in our family, a dessert that was always requested and eagerly awaited.

As the years passed, I began to experiment with different variations of the recipe, adding in new flavors and textures to create unique twists on the classic dessert. I found inspiration in the foods I tasted during my travels, incorporating exotic spices and ingredients to create a fusion of flavors that delighted the palate.

But no matter how many variations I tried, the original Choco-Hoto-Pots remained a favorite among my family and friends. It was a reminder of the bond between Martha, my mother, and myself, a connection that spanned generations and was woven into every bite of the dessert.

And so, as I sit here in my kitchen, preparing another batch of Choco-Hoto-Pots for a family gathering, I can't help but feel grateful for the memories and experiences that led me to this moment. Cooking has always been more than just a hobby for me – it has been a way to connect with the people I love and to pass down a legacy of flavors and traditions.

I take a deep breath, savoring the aroma of chocolate and spices wafting through the air, and I smile to myself. Martha may be gone now, but her spirit lives on in every bite of Choco-Hoto-Pots I make. And as I serve the dessert to my family, I know that I am honoring her memory and the bonds that tie us together, one delicious bite at a time.
