No flour needed!

Molten Milk Chocolate Mini Cakes
4 {1oz} squares semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 cup butter
3/4th cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten
milk chocolate chips

Milk Chocolate Icing
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 300. Now grease one 12 count muffin tin with butter, nonstick spray or vegetable oil . Next dust your greased cups with cocoa powder. Using microwave or double boiler melt the butter and semi-sweet chocolate. Once fully melted add in the suagr, cocoa powder, eggs, and vanilla. Pour equally into muffin cups. Sprinkle some of the milk chocolate chips in the center of each cake. Bake for about 30 minutes and then remove from oven and let cool in pan for about 10 minutes. After that remove them from the tin to complete cooling.

While the cakes were cooking you could melt on low heat the chocolate chips and cream. Do this until chips are completely dissolved. Then put the icing in the fridge. Keep in fridge about 30 - 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once cakes have been cooled and the icing cool and thick, dip each cake into the bowl of icing. Store the cakes in the fridge until ready to be eaten. When ready to be served, warm each mini cake for about 20 or 30 seconds in the microwave. {Yes I know, totally not old fashioned - but totally scrumptious lol!}

Note: I used only 1/4th cup butter by accident and it came out just as good. I'm sure it would have made a little more batter had I used the whole half a cup. These do have a slight brownie like taste, but we still love'em! Basic recipe from Allrecipes.com
