HMNS is the topic of a special Sunday-night special on KTRK channel 13 that explores the behind-the-scenes work that went into putting together our compelling new Hall of Paleontology.

The half-hour special includes footage shot over three years on-site at HMNS, at South Dakota’s Black Hills Institute of Geological Research and up-close at dig sites, providing new insight into how major exhibitions are put together.

What you’ll need:

8 tablespoons (or 1 stick) of unsalted butter
2 teaspoons of flour
4 ounces of bittersweet chocolate (Giradelli’s works best)
2 large whole eggs
2 large egg yolks
1/4 cup of sugar

1 couch

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Butter and lightly flour molds
  3. Combine butter and chocolate in top of broiler set over simmering water; heat until just melted
  4. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, yolks and sugar
  5. Add melted chocolate mixture and beat to combine
  6. Quickly beat in flour and pour batter evenly into molds once combined
  7. Bake until sides have set but the center remains soft – no more than 6 or 7 minutes
  8. Invert each mold onto plate and let rest for 10 seconds
  9. Garnish with melted red chocolate for lava
