I made this recipe with my children and we all enjoyed it. We ate it right out of the ramikens. It was absolutely delicious. Our only regret is that the recipe only made four in our ramikens. I suggest having a nice tall glass of milk on hand because Joe's creations are very rich!

A simple dessert to make and definitely very rich. One cake per person was definitely enough as each one was very filling. Its best to let the cakes cool for a couple of minutes and a knife isn't even necessary to use to take them out. It's then easy enough to take them out by hand.

This batter comes out way too thick with all the flour and chocolate chips. I would find another recipe with less flour. No way I could eat this, too dry.

Adding a little less flour so it's more 'cake' consistency and using miniature marshmallows. I'll be making these for our next church social. I imagine they're going to be the first items gone!

This was awesome!!! I only baked for 10-11 minutes so it would be extra gooey. My husband loved it. I ended up putting the recipe into 4- 6 oz ramekins. I will definitely make these again.

I made these with dairy free chocolate chips and shortening - and they turned out great! Our family has dairy allergies, so there are few desserts that the whole family enjoys, but this will be a keeper. I used 4 6 oz ramekins, but will try it in muffin tins next time. The servings were large for children - but they ate it all!

extremely rich batter. This recipe is nice and simple, which I like, however next time I will try it w/less chocolate chips and add some milk so the batter is creamier and so the cake can be a bit moist. I also agree on using miniature marshmallows instead of large ones.

They turned out great! I wish I made more

No one loves chocolate more than me but I wasn't crazy about this. Too sweet? I don't know.

Like the other reviewer, I ended up with 4 ramkins. Used the convection oven as noted in recipe and followed recipe exactly. For me it was too sweet, but husband really liked it. Had a very cake like consistency, not so gooey as I thought it would be . Nonetheless, tasty and a good recipe to have on hand for a quick dessert. Am going to compare it with a few other similar recipes before I decide if I make it again or not.
