chocolate shots

The dough didn’t come together.
I thought the recipe was a disaster.
As a last effort, I poured the batter into mini cupcake liners and baked 14 minutes as instructed.

They were a hit!
Oooey  goooey in the center, the trick to eating these was to squeeze the molten chocolate out of the mini liner and directly into the mouth.

I’m sure that was not the intent of the recipe, but it works!
(Sorry, no pictures of the real thing…I thought they were a disaster….but they weren’t.)
