Dark Molten Chocolate Cakes

This decadent recipe is from Kraft Foods. It's easy enough to make and tastes delicious. It looks like I'll be gaining some weight, but who's to say we still will be here tomorrow. So I've decided to live it up:)

Be careful when microwaving the chocolate, if you use it on a high setting, there is a big chance the chocolate will burn. I had never seen burnt chocolate before. I actually didn't even know that chocolate can burn:) If you don't want to take a chance, you can also use the homemade version of the classic "double boiler"method: Place the chocolate in a small pot. Take a second, larger pot and bring a couple of inches of water to a gentle boil. Lower the small chocolate containing pot in, cover with larger pot's lid and wait for the steam from the boiling water do the job. It shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes, depending on the quantity you're melting.

Please feel free to comment if you bake these wonderful chocolate cakes.
