I made this for my husband on Valentine's Day and he loved it (as did the kids). Substituted 8-oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, used four whole eggs and omitted the Grand Marnier. Baked in six large silicone muffin cups for 14 min. They were easy to remove after cooling for 5 min or so. The centers were wonderfully gooey. Served with a drizzle of raspberry sauce on the side. Great recipe! This is definitely going in the family recipe book.

Made this exactly except left out the Grand Marnier. Baked in ramekins for exactly 14 minutes. Only used 5 ramekins instead of 6( that's all I had), so wondered if they would be cooked enough. The cake was moist in the middle, but not gooey. Next time I will go a few minutes less on the baking time. The taste was good, but just would prefer them to be less firm in the middle.

I made this for my husband for valentines day this year as he had been bugging me to make molten lava cakes for a month! I have another recipie I use but this time I wanted to try something different and Paula Deen is a fave cook of mine. My husband enjoyed the cakes and so did I but I will stick to the other recipe have next time. The other recipie I have had a kick of cayene pepper and more richness to it if you can believe it!

This recipe was spot-on... However I feel like the portion sizes were a tad too big; I would probably reduce it half of the quantity next time. Other than that, everything was great!

Nice, impressive dessert with a minimum of effort. I did make it a few hours ahead and baked it as the coffee was brewing... couldn't have been better!

Incredilble! We used Chambord instead of an orange liquer. Better than any I've ever tasted!

These are good, but for the life of me I can't get them to be molten....
