Molten Lava Cakes

This recipe was made by my friend Leslie, she made them up and then brought them to my house, I just baked them and asked if I could post pictures and share the recipe.  They were OH so good.  They reminded me of these things we ordered on the cruise called "Chocolate Melting Cakes."  Yumm... apparently I was supposta invert them onto a dessert plate, but I didn't, I ate it straight out of the bowl! SERVE with Ice cream, it's a must, it breaks up the richness of the chocolate!

  Molten Lava Cakes

6 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet cho
(1-ounce) squares semisweet choc

10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tables
poons orange liqueur (you can omit this or add any other liqueur)

Serve with Vanilla Ice cream (optional) but basically a must.... :)
1 package of toffee bits
Preheat oven to
425 degrees F.

Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and orange liqueur. Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
If you want, just add the Heath bar to the bottom of the ramekins.  That way, when you invert the cakes, you will have the Heath bar on top.  Enjoy!

  1. Um, I'm sorry, but those sound UH mazing. Since i'm not known for my domestic skills, I buy similar ones from Trader Joes (Lava Cakes) and they're amazing!
