Description

These cakes are so soft, moist and gooey. When you stick your spoon in, molten chocolate oozes! Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Ingredients

  • 8 Tablespoons Butter
  • 4 ounces, weight Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 4 pieces Hersey's Special Dark Chocolate Bar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth.

Whip eggs, yolks, sugar and vanilla with a mixer for about 10 minutes on high speed.

Fold melted chocolate and butter into the egg mixture. Fold in flour until just combined. Grease four 6-oz. ramekins, then spoon the mixture into the ramekins. Place 1 dark chocolate square in each ramekin.

Bake at 450°F for 10-15 minutes. The center will be quite soft, but the top and sides will be set. Let sit out of the oven for about 5 minutes, then unmold onto a plate or serve in ramekins with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
