    A friend served these at a dinner party a few years back and I HAD to have the recipe. Given my friend, I'm assuming the recipe came from Bon Appetit at some point.

      This was absolutely fabulous--a chocolate-lover's dream! I didn't have 1-cup ramekins, so I baked mine in mini bundt pans. I turned them out upside-down onto a plate and placed melted chocolate into the bundt cake center topped with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I didn't have all the ingredients to make the espresso whipped cream, but I bet that would have been top-notch as well. Thanks for such a decadent, sinful delight!
