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!

Ooey gooey chocolatyness! Mine didn't firm up well enough, and I cooked for 10 minutes. Next time, just a tad longer in the oven. Thanks for a great recipe.

These were super easy to make and extremely chocolatey-totally satisfied my craving for something gooey and chocolatey. I halved the recipe but made two servings in ramekins. Since these cakes are very rich, i couldnt finish the whole thing. My husband who isnt a big fan of chocolate, couldnt stop talking about how yummy they were. Thanks for sharing. My first time trying a molten cake recipe and turned out perfect.

These were great! I used half semi-sweet chocolate squares, half chocolate chips. I baked these in a couple different batches, to try to figure out the right temperature for our stove. Even when i cooked them too long (no lava)they were very delicious and very light textured. The second time, they were refrigerated overnight and they heated well - and this time lava! YUM YUM Served with cool-whip, a big hit with husband. Thanks for the recipe.

I baked these in a Texas muffin tin, and baked them 10 minutes without paying attention, so I had no lava...but I will make them again and watch them more closely so next time I will! They were delicious! I used light cream, unsweetened chocolate and splenda, and I used ground almonds in place of the flour because we are on the South Beach Diet. I will make these over and over again, and hopefully perfect the baking time so I get the wonderful chocolate ooze!

This was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good and soooooooo easy to make!! its hard to believe something that easy could taste THAT good. Next time though i will use paper muffin cups because they were a bit hard to remove from muffin rack. Serve immidiatley so that the center remains gooey! I also substituted the 1/4 cup heavy cream with 1/2 cup light whipped cream and it worked out fine, Thnx Sharlene for sharing such a GREAT recipe. BON APPETIT!!

Perfection! My DS's favorite dessert from Chili's. Topped it with a scoop of ice cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup. Thank you so much for posting this, Charlene~W.
