You know what’s fantastic?

Rainy days. Rainy, cool, cloud covered days when all that sounds good is an old quilt, John Hughes films, and a date with the couch.  Oh, and hot chocolate.  Lots of whipped cream.

Typically, I leave it to the Keurig to keep my hot chocolate fix under control.  Or, if I am lucky, I have a batch of this hot chocolate mix tucked away in the cabinet.  Sometimes you need to eat though…so why not eat your hot chocolate?

Hot Chocolate Popovers.

Sweet mercy and goodness.

I made a batch of these, not sure what to expect.  Would they be too much?  Would they give me the flavor I needed?

Yes, yes, yes.

I full on did not expect these to be half as good as they turned out.  If you make them, be sure to make plenty of whipped cream.  If you are feeling adventurous, add a little mint to the whipped cream.  Mmmm, mint.

Next time, folks.  I have ideas for next time.

Gracious.

Anyway, give these a shot for your next brunch or breakfast – or, they’ll make a delicious dessert.  It is chocolate, after all.  Lots and lots of chocolate.

Yes.

Hot Chocolate Popovers

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 26 minutes

Total Time: 31 minutes

Yield: 12 mini or 6 large popovers

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon All Purpose Flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Divide the butter into the cups of your Pop Over Pan. (If you don’t own one, you can use a muffin tin, but you will need to use all 12 cups. Just divide the butter up evenly) Place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes while you are making the batter.
  2. In medium bowl, beat the eggs and egg white with the milk, cream, vanilla, and sugar, then whisk in the flour, cocoa, and salt. Pour the batter into the butter filled cups; bake for 22 minutes. Remove from oven and add chocolate chips to each popover. Return to oven. Leave in oven 4 more minutes. Serve with whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!
