Melting Chocolate Cake (From Carnival Cruise Lines)

Absolutely one of the FINEST chocolate desserts I've ever eaten. I even repeated our visit to the dining room just so I could have another go at this dessert before we got off the boat. Carnival passed this recipe out in the dining room the last night of the cruise and I'm SOOO happy they did!

I've just got to try this again soon. I cooked it for 18 minutes and that was too long. Nothing melting left. All cooked like brownie. Ate it anyway and it was good, but I really want to recreate that delicious cruise ship dessert!

Tried this recipe. Baked for 15 mins, and it was way too cakey. Not melty at all. And the taste is also off. Not sweet enough, and probably should use dark semisweet chocolate.
