Easy Molten Spiced Chocolate Cabernet Cakes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I found this in a McCormick Spice ad in Food & Wine magazine (July 2006). The chocolate mixture can be prepared up to 10 hours ahead of time. Pour the batter into prepared custard cups, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.
