Moelleux au Chocolat

Here is the promised dessert. It it absolutely amazing... especially for chocoholics like me :D

300 g bitter chocolate, 6 eggs at room temperature, 200 g sugar, 150 g butter melted and cooled, 1 tablespoon rhum, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Butter 8 small ramekin dishes or one big one (26 cm diameter). Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Melt the chocolate. In a big bowl mix the sugar with 2 whole eggs and 4 egg yolks, until it triples its volume. Add the alcohol and the vanilla extract. Mix for another 30 seconds. Add the chocolate bit by bit, mixing well with a spoon. Now add the butter also bit by bit. Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and then fold them into the chocolate mousse. Pour the chocolate mousse in the buttered ramekins and put them in the oven for 16 minutes (the small ones, or 35 minutes the big one). Leave for another 10 minutes to rest in the forms and then you can take it out.
You can serve it warm with vanilla icecream or cold with some cream on top.
