Molten Chocolate Cakes

This has been a favorite dessert around here for years! I don't know how it has never been posted on this blog before now! Well, I made it this year for our Valentine's dessert, yummy ending to a great meal! (I'll share the meal, or at least the main course, at a later time.) This month's Improv Challenge over at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker called for Hearts and Flours -Cute! so I thought this would be the perfect dish to share. You can see the original recipe HERE, the only change I have made is to cut the recipe in half.

2 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
3 Tbsp flour
whipped topping

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Butter two small custard cups (mine are actually one cup prep bowls that are oven safe) and place on baking sheet. Microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl for one minute on high or until butter is melted. Whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar.
Add egg and egg yolk, mixing well. Stir in flour. Divide evenly into prepared cups.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes, sides should be firm but center should still be soft. Let rest for one minute. Carefully run a small spatula around the edge to loosen. Even more carefully invert onto serving dish.
Top with whipped topping. Serve and enjoy!
