Servings 6 cakes

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/3 cups of dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life brand)
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 12-18 raspberries, depending on the size

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. Butter six ¾-cup size ramekins (or 7 muffin cups).
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate and butter on medium power for 1 minute, then in 30 second increments until the butter and the chocolate have melted. Set aside to cool a bit.
  • Stir in the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of sugar into the chocolate mixture.
  • Place egg whites in a large bowl, beat until foamy. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and cocoa powder. Gradually beat into whites until soft peaks fold over when you lift the beaters.
  • Stir in 1/3 of the chocolate-butter mixture into the whites mixture. Gently fold in the rest of the chocolate mixture until completely combined. Place a tablespoon of the mixture into each of the cups. Add 2-3 raspberries. Divide the remaining mixture evenly between the cups.
