6 (1 ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
2 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
10 TBS butter
1/2 cup flour
1-1/2 cups homemade powdered sugar
3 eggs
3 egg yolks
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract

PREHEAT oven to 425 degrees. Grease six (6 ounce) custard cups.

Melt chocolate and butter together in the microwave or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to the melted mixture. Stir in the eggs and the egg yolks until smooth. Then add the vanilla.

Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups (or ramekins). Bake for 14 minutes. The edges will be firm but the center is gooey. Just run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
