Chocolate Heaven!

Tonight I decided to make a special but quick dessert. Seeing as how we didn't have much in the house I had to get creative with what to make. I decided to make molten chocolate cakes and they came out delicious. It was the perfect food for the chocolate fix I was looking for. The original recipe can be found here but I made it for two instead of 8.

Molten Chocolate Cake

1/4 cup unsalted butter/margarine
2 squares Baker's semi-sweet chocolate
1 large egg
2 tablespoons of sugar
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon flour

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Coat 2 ramekins with butter and flour.

Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler (or heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water); remove from heat. Beat in the egg, sugar, and salt until the sugar dissolves. Beat in flour.

Divide batter among the two ramekins and bake in oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

Once cakes have been removed from oven, flip them onto a plate and top with your favorite toppings. I used vanilla ice cream with caramel swirls and then topped it off with Nutella....yum!!

Stephanie, Chocolate Heaven is right! That looks absolutely delish! I like the fact that you were able to make is just for 2. . . that's really good for me - if not I'd be tempted to eat more! Thanks for that mouthwatering pic!
