Peter's Easy Molten Chocolate Dessert

This is a super easy recipe that makes for an awesome finish to any dinner party. The whole recipe takes about 25 minutes (including prep and baking time). Make the moltens right before you want to eat them because you'll want to serve them straight out of the oven. The top will be a nice chocolate crust but when you dive, a rich mouth-watering pool of gooey chocolate will emerge.

1 stick butter
1 1.5oz Hershey bar
2oz 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate (Ghirardelli is much preferred)
1 handful semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 (2/3 to 1-cup capacity) ramekins

Put a baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack and Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Butter the inside of ramekins or spray with butter Pam spray.

In a double boiler, melt all the stick of butter and all the chocolate together. Once melted, set aside and let cool for a few minutes.

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, flour, and sugar. Beat in the chocolate/butter mixture.

Divide the batter evenly into the four ramekins.

Bake for about 20 minutes. The tops should look cooked but underneath will still be gooey.

Let your guests eat the dessert right out of the individual ramekins. Just make sure you warn them that the ramekins are still hot.

Easy, and trust me, absolutely delicious.
