Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat.

Mix sugar and cornstarch together in a bowl. Crack eggs into another bowl and whisk yolks into whole eggs.

When chocolate has melted, remove from heat. Whisk in sugar-cornstarch mixture until blended. Add eggs and stir until smooth. Chill in the fridge overnight.

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Line 8 metal rings (you can use 1 1/2-inch deep tin cans with both ends opened) with a strip of parchment paper, or grease 1/2 cup ramekins. Set the rings on the baking sheet and brush generously with butter. Scoop chocolate filling into each one, filling them two-thirds full.

Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Slice a metal spatula under cakes and transfer to serving plates. Gently slide the rings off cakes and remove the parchment. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
