    Annacia's Note:

    These little molten chocolate-cherry cakes are perfect to serve on Valentine's Day for a very special dessert. When you cut into them, chocolate comes "oozing" out, so good! Remember, it is very important to serve these cakes warm from the oven. Be sure to make the dipped cherrries ahead and have them ready.

      I cut the recipe in half to make 3 . I can not find stemmed cherries so skipped the covered cherries step. I served them with cherry flavored whipped cream( just homemade whipped cream with the maraschino cherry juice added) that I added bits of chopped cherries to. YUMMMMMMMY. I love lava cakes and this is a wonderful twist. Made for Photo Tag
