Chocolate Paprika Sauce:
1. Pre-heat oven to 400
3. Melt chocolate and butter in heavy sauce pan and stir over a medium heat until melted. Do not boil. Remove from the heat and let cool to lukewarm temperature. Stir occasionally.
5. With an electric mixer beat the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl for about 5 minutes until the mixture is thick and pale.
9. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes. The insides should be gooey. If you would like them more well done, leave them in for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes before you turn them out onto a plate.
The book states that while chocolate and paprika go well together, they do not cook well together! By stirring the paprika in at the very last minute you will alleviate the bitter flavor that will occur if you cook it with the chocolate.
We served ours with a few cherries and a big glass of milk. The flavor was not at all sweet, but more savory and very chocolatey. It would had also been great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
