A romantic dessert for Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day. Warm chocolate oozes out as you cut into these mini cakes. You can substitute semi-sweet chocolate for the bittersweet chocolate if you prefer.

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 :)
