Molten Chocolate Cakes for Two

Welcome 2014!  In looking at my lack of posts in 2013, one may think I fell off the face of the planet.  No worries, I'm back, and in a cooking mode frenzy.  My husband and I got some good news the other day, and to celebrate I wanted to make a rich decadent not-at-all-healthy dessert.  I follow Dessert For Two; she pairs down recipes for, yep, you got it, two people. Perfect! I made her Chocolate Molten Cakes (or Chocolate Lava cakes, you get the idea).  I've made these once before from a traditional recipe making 4-6, and they are just not as good reheated vs fresh from the oven.  So a recipe for two is just what I needed (or be tempted to eat the remainder that night.....)

I have a confession, and that is that I got nervous about UNDER-cooking these not thinking of overcooking them. Here's a link to the recipe, with a picture of what it supposed to look like when you break it open. Notice how I don't have a picture of mine with ooey-goodness pouring out? Yeah, I overcooked it.  BUT, be comforted to know that if you do the same, it still tastes GREAT! It's then just a Chocolate Cake without the Molten.

I'm definitely going to make this again, next time without overcooking it!  I also did not have any instant espresso powder. Was great without, but i'm sure would be that much better with it. So make sure you have some!

2014 here we come!
