½c white granulated sugar
2tsp baking powder
½c almond flour
1c dark chocolate (chopped)
½c white chocolate (chopped)
1c pecan nuts (chopped)
Soften the butter slightly and add the sugars to it. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Add the flour, almond flour and cinnamon to the mixture and mix well. Mix the chopped chocolate and nuts into the mixture. Place 2 spoons of the mixture in a small oven-proof bowl. Bake at 180°C for 12-15min until it is light golden and soft to the touch. Serve immediately and top with peanut-butter ice-cream.
8x egg yolks

Heat the milk and cream together slowly. Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl.
Pour the warm milk mixture over the eggs. Cook the mixture on a very low heat to form a thin custard. Add the peanut butter while the mixture is still warm. Blend the mixture in an ice-cream machine. Serve on the warm choc-chip cookie.
