Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes

What says romantic dessert better than a chocolate molten lava cake?! We made these delectable treats for our V-Day dessert and then again last night (they were THAT good hah!).

These little treats are super duper simple.  I actually had all the ingredients on hand (I had accidentally bought Baker’s chocolate for another recipe)! SCORE! Seriously, you have to make these. They take 15-17 minutes from start to finish – talk about getting your chocolate fix QUICK! Bonus- they are super impressive. You’re friends and/or significant other won’t believe you actually made them!! 🙂

4 Squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Spray 4 small custard cups/ramkins with non-stick cooking spray (or butter); place on baking sheet.

Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until butter is melted; whisk until chocolate is completely melted.

    Wow, less than 20 minutes to make these?!? I would have thought it took longer. Guess that means I get to quit drooling over them and actually make them 😀
