Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC/325ºF/gas 3.
  2. Snap the chocolate into a heatproof bowl, add the butter and a pinch of sea salt and place over a pan of gently simmering water until smooth and melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar and eggs together until thick and fluffy. Whisking constantly, pour the chocolate mixture into the eggs, until combined.
  4. Divide between 12 small ovenproof teacups or ramekins, then place them in a large, deep roasting tray. Place the tray in the oven, then carefully pour enough boiling kettle water into the tray to come halfway up the side of the cups.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, then carefully remove the cups from the tray and leave them to sit for at least 15 minutes before serving.
  6. Meanwhile, to make the syrup, squeeze all the clementine juice through a sieve into a small pan.
  7. Add the sugar and bring to the boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer for 15 minutes, or until starting to thicken and coat the back of a spoon.
  8. Remove from the heat and leave to cool to room temperature. For maximum pleasure, enjoy the chocolate pots at room temperature – if they’re hot, they’ll be too runny, and if they even touch the fridge, they become too firm. Serve with a spoonful of crème fraîche and a drizzle of the syrup. Heaven.
