I made these for my daughter's birthday at her request. The entire family LOVED them. What a chocolate lover's dream. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting over the top, these were incredible. They were easy to make, too. I would suggest a pinch of salt, but great recipe!

Yum! Great chocolate dessert without being too sweet. We loved the gooey center and how easy they were to whip up. I just decided we needed something sweet and had these done in no time.
