Cook time:

11 mins

Ingredients:

- 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
-1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 teaspoons POUR OLIVE Dark Cherry Balsamic Vinegar
-1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Method:

1. In the microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of the chocolate chips, and the butter stirring occasionally until smooth.

2. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla extract, cherry balsamic, and the chocolate mixture until well mixed.
