Molten Marshmallow Lava Anyone ?

Joe's Molten Marshmallow-Chocolate Cakes

This treat involves an oozing center with marshmallow instead of the usual chocolate center. Making this edible work of art quite a surprise when you dig down deep in it's core.

Excellent indulgent dessert...

Steps

1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 large marshmallows
Powdered sugar (optional)

1. In a 3- to 4-quart pan over very low heat, stir chocolate chips and butter until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour.

2. Fill six buttered, floured ramekins (1/2-cup capacity) about halfway. Press a marshmallow into the center of the batter in each ramekin. Spoon remaining batter equally over marshmallows, completely covering.

3. Bake in the center of a 350° regular or 325° convection oven until tops are puffed up and crackly, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes, then run a knife along inside of ramekins and invert to release cakes. Place right side up on plates. Sprinkle tops with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm.

You have to keep coming out with stuff like this so I can show it to my girlfriend and she can feed it to me.
