    Sharlene~W's Note:

    When you cut into these warm cakes, their molten center flows out. You can assemble these in advance. (Up to 24 hours ahead, refrigerate and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes. Up to 2 weeks ahead, freeze and pop them in the oven for 16 minutes.)

      These little cakes were wonderful. Thanks so much for posting the recipe. They popped easily out of the custard cups. I used chocolate chips instead of the baking squares. The chocolate just oozed nicely out of the cake. You chocolate lovers out there HAVE to try this.

      Delicious - VERY rich! I could tell it was done when the edges were hard, and the centre still had a bit of a gloss. They turned out perfectly!

      Very good recipe! and so easy to make... I made a mistake by baking it too long, so the chocolate didn't ooze out of the cake. but the second time I did it, I made sure that the center was jiggly, and it came out wonderful... thanks!
