Molten Lava Cake

I stole this right from my friend Camille's blog (with her permission :D ) It is soooooo yummy! It will cure any chocolate craving you have!

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for muffin tins
1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus more for muffin tins
3 large eggs
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted ( 1 1/3 full cups of chips)
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Whipped Heavy Whipping Cream (to top with when you eat. you could do ice cream or something of course)

Preheat to 400 degrees.

Take a 6 cup muffin tin (or use a 12, just do this to 6 and put a little water in the other 6 to avoid scorching during baking), coat them in the extra butter, then liberally coat each cup in sugar. (Don’t skip this part. It gives a delightful outer crust to the cake!)
Now mix until fluffy the butter and the sugar. Add the eggs – one at at time and blend thoroughly after each egg. On low, add the flour and salt until blended. Now slowly added the melted chocolate (do this by hand) and just folded it in until combined.
Split the batter between the 6 cups, bake for 8-10 minutes.
*Note – if you cook these too long they will not be ruined. They won’t be lava cakes anymore. They will be rich dense cupcakes.
Turn them upside down, dust with powdered sugar, and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
