This was so decadent and rich! This is a great way to get that chocolate craving satisfied without going crazy on calories! The only change I would made next time is to dust the ramekin with flour instead of sugar. The sugar made the cake a little crunchy and chewy on the edges and I prefer a softer edge. Other than that, this was superb. I added a dollop of Cool Whip Free to help cut the richness and it was delish! Definitely will be added to my menus when I need that chocolate fix!
