4 tablespoons Butter (for the inside of the molds)
7 ounces 58% Semi-Sweet Chocolate
5 ounces Butter
7 each Eggs, separate the yolks from the whites
5 ounces Sugar

3 ounces 58% Semi-Sweet Chocolate
3 ½ ounces 38% Milk Chocolate
3 ½ fluid ounces Half & Half
2 tablespoons Corn Syrup
3 fluid ounces Simple Syrup (4 tablespoons water, 4 tablespoons sugar)


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, with a rack in the middle.
2. Drizzle a generous tablespoon of the butter over the bottom of each ramekin mold.

9. When ramekins are cool enough to handle, remove them from the water bath and let cool completely.
10. Cover each with plastic wrap and allow it to rest for 10 minutes. 
11. When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap, place a plate on top, and flip.
12. Remove the ramekin and serve with chocolate sauce and fresh whipped cream.
