Chocolate Molten Cake

 Would you care to join me for some chocolate molten cake?  This dessert is so easy and incredibly fabulous!  I'm using a Vera Bradley blanket that my oldest son, DIL, and granddaughters gave me for Christmas.  Aren't the colors so pretty?  The roses are from my three grandsons who brought them on Valentine's Day, along with my daughter and Cissy, who brought a balloon, and a box of candy.

 My youngest son and DIL gave me a set of Royal Albert teacups one year for Christmas, and this is one of them.

Cissy made  these beautiful tuxedo strawberries this week.

 Harper and Hayden came and spent the night with me, and we had fun!

 Avery and Ella came over to do some crafts.  We made the snowmen, and below, we made the vintage Valentine girls. 

What a great Valentine week it was!  

Yield: 4

Chocolate Molten Cakes

These little cakes are so easy and I perfect way to satisfy your chocolate cravings.


  • 1 pkg. (4 ounces) Semi-Sweet Chocolate (I weighed out 4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips instead)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 6 Tbsp. flour


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.  (I used the convection setting, and lowered the temperature to 400 degrees.)
  2. Butter 4 small custard cups; place on baking sheet.
  3. Microwave chocolate and butter in medium microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until butter is melted; whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Add whole eggs and egg yolks; mix well. Stir in flour. Spoon into prepared cups.
  4. Bake 13 to 14 min. or until edges of desserts are firm but centers are still soft. Let stand 1 min. Carefully run knife around cakes to loosen; invert into dessert plates. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.


Make Ahead:
Prepare batter as directed; pour into prepared custard cups, and cover.   Refrigerate up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour before baking as directed.
