This was the most amazing Molten Chocolate Cakes ever!!! I did not have Irish Cream so did not use and absolutely fantastic, will try with Irish Cream next time, thank you for a definite keeper!!! I used semi sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup and it was great thanks.

This was very good despite the fact that I misread the recipe and only used 2 tbs of Irish Cream in the cake mix itself, be careful not to do that but even doing so it was still a good, easy cake to make, just very chocolatey. I think one person commented they didn't have enough molten and I think I might have had just a smidgeon to much :)

I thought molten cakes would be complicated to make. I couldn't have been more wrong. They are so simple, and it looks like it took a lot of effort. I decided to make these for my husband for Valentines Day, and he loved it. I'm a little bummed though; I cooked it for a minute too long, so there wasn't much molten!! They were still great, and I will be making them again' being careful not to overcook :) Thanks
