I love chocolate omelets because so many people seem so startled by the idea. A chocolate omelet might seem odd, but eggs take beautifully to chocolate, as anyone who has ever had a chocolate cake or chocolate pudding or a chocolate mousse or a chocolate custard—or a chocolate soufflé—knows. This recipe incorporates melted chocolate into the yolks, giving the omelet a beautiful dark complexion. Making it in the oven gives it a light, almost cakelike texture.
