Two Greedy Italians star Gennaro Contaldo's warm mini chocolate puddings are the perfect decadent treat. Gennaro has created the perfect mini chocolate pudding with a smooth, creamy centre, they'll put a smile on everyone's face.


  • 250g good-quality dark chocolate, broken into small chunks
  • 125g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 50g sugar
  • 6 egg whites
  • Salt

Gennaro says: 'The puddings are best eaten straight away, however you can always heat them up from cold for a few seconds in the microwave or in a hot oven instead if necessary.'


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Lightly grease 6 x 6cm ramekin dishes with butter.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water.
  3. In a second bowl, whisk the egg yolks with 30g of the sugar until creamy. Stir in the melted chocolate and butter.
  4. In another clean bowl, whisk the egg whites with the remaining sugar and a pinch of salt until stiff. Fold into the chocolate mixture until well amalgamated.
  5. Divide the mixture between the ramekin dishes and bake in the oven for 6 minutes. Remove from the oven, tip the puddings out onto individual plates or leave in the ramekin dishes and serve immediately.
