Molten Lava Chocolate Cupcakes

by Katie of:


4 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
4 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 t. salt


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Grease 12 muffin tins. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla.. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin tins. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates. Serve with chocolate syrup or hot fudge drizzeled plates, a scoop of ice cream and a sliced strawberry! Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
