Caramel Filled Molten Chocolate Cakes

Caramel Filled Molten Chocolate Cakes
I love Molten Chocolate Cakes.  The way you dig in and get a gooey chocolate center, so delicious!  I also love salted caramels.  I was going to make these Molten cakes for our Bible study one night and thought I would mix it up and put a caramel in the middle.  Am I ever glad I did, these are so good!  They're easy to make too~ try them tonight!  (I did complicate my recipe a bit by making my own salted caramels, but you could simplify it by using store-bought caramels)

You will need:
4 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
3 Tablespoons margarine
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar (I used vanilla sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon flour
6 caramels (I used my recipe!)

1.  Melt chopped chocolate and butter in a small bowl.  Set aside to cool.

2.  In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt.  Beat with a mixer until it becomes fluffy and triples in volume.  It took me about 5 minutes.

3.  Carefully stir in flour.

4.  Fold in chocolate mixture just until combined.

5.  Divide batter evenly between 6 greased ramekins.

6.  Place a caramel in the center of each ramekin and make sure it's covered with chocolate.

7.  Bake at 400 for 9-11 minutes.  I found that 11 minutes was a little too long as the cakes got baked almost completely through and there wasn't much "molten" part.  You'll want to serve these immediately so the caramel doesn't harden.

  10. I just stumbled across your blog. Oh yum! Can you give me a translation because I live in New Zealand and I'm not sure what you mean by 'caramels'. Are these chocolate coloured hard caramel lollies?
