Molten Chocolate Cakes

...Andy's Valentine dessert!

Easy and decadent! I think this came from a Kraft Foods Magazine. We ate these warm out of the oven while the center was oozing out! I made homemade whipped cream for the topping. It was delicious!

Molten Chocolate Cakes
4 sqaures semi-sweet Baking chocolate
1/2 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
6 Tb flour

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 T sugar

Preheat oven to 425. Butter 4 ramekins (custard cups). Place on cookie sheet. Microwave chocolate and butter on high 1 min or until butter is melted. Stir with whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar until well blended. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks. Stir in flour. Divide batter between ramekins. *At this point you can cover each ramekin with plastic and refrigerate up to 1 day ahead of baking.* Bake 13-14 minutes until sides are firm but centers are soft. Let stand 1 minute. Carefully run a small knife around cakes to loosen. Invert onto plates and top with whipped cream. Serve immediately!
