Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a dream dessert this was! What a dream dessert this was! It was sooo easy to make and even better to eat. I made this last night for my husband and 4 year old daughter for Valentines day. They loved it! This recipie deserves 10 stars. If you are wondering if it will turn out like the picture...yes it does, exactly the same, the best part (aside from the chocolat pouring out!) was presenting this. The powdered sprinkles of powdered sugar made this cake look like it came from a fancy resturant! The only thing I did differently was using semi-sweet bakers chocolate vs. the bittersweet. A+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Fantastic! I impressed my whole family (and myself) because they looked like they were restaurant quality and they tasted like it too! Absolutely delicious. I'm a HUGE choc-aholic, so these were very satisfying. If you're having a dinner party these will be perfect as long as you don't mind excusing yourself for about 20 minutes to prepare them -- as they need to be served basically right out of the oven (to ensure the "molten" effect). I've made them 3x already, and couldn't be happier with the results. ENJOY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy to make! Super easy to make! I made them the night before for Valentine's Day (yesterday) and popped them in the oven while finishing up dinner (another recipe from here) They were delicious! I actually used the Semi-Sweet b/c the grocery store didn't have bittersweet. I couldn't cooked it a bit longer but I didn't want to over cook them so I took them out at 12 mins...Def make again! My fiance was very impressed!! I reheated the leftover ones today and they are just as good from the microwave! THanks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is ALWAYS a hit with our 4 teens. This is ALWAYS a hit with our 4 teens. I do have one concern, though...and hope someone can clarify. Being that the recipe includes eggs...and they are not fully cooked in the molten centers, is there any danger of salmonella poisoning? We have eaten this over and over many times with no illness, but I always have that question nagging at the back of my mind when I prepare them. Any thoughts?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was fantastic! This recipe was fantastic! So simple and yet so delicious. I did not want to be mixing dessert with my guests over for dinner. So I actually made batter as directed but then put it in the fridge. When I was ready for begin the dessert, I dumped the batter into my souffle dishes and put them in the over. It was awesome! Great presentation too!

I actually used SEMI-SWEET chocolate rather than the bittersweet...YUM YUM!!! comment to a cook on 9/26 - how long did you cook? i did exactly 14 mins and then let stand the 1 min. one thing that i almost missed until i read again was use 3 whole eggs and also 3 egg yolks..did you do that? i almost missed the extra 3 yolks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i've made this recipe several times and everyone raves over it! i've made this recipe several times and everyone raves over it! it looks super fancy and is so easy. i do have a few in my family that are gluten intolerant. when i make it for them, i substitute equal amounts of gluten free flour mix for the regular flour. i think it turns out better with the gluten free flour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow is this delicious and easy to make. Wow is this delicious and easy to make. GUARANTEED you will not be disappointed. A very impressive dessert. Very easy to divide receipe to make less. Batter can be made days ahead of time. When ready to use, just pour into custard cups, bake while you are eating dinner, and it's ready in time for dessert.
