Chocolate Lava Mini Cakes.....Yum!

I searched the internet and found this recipe. It was surprisingly easy and of course my family loved them!

1/2 C real butter

-4 oz semisweet chocolate chips
-2 eggs
-2 egg yolks
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1/4 C chopped walnuts
-1/4 C white sugar
-2 tsp all-purpose flour
-Powdered sugar

Preheated your oven to 450 degrees.
Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler. Beat together the 2 whole eggs, the 2 additional egg yolks, vanilla, and sugar until it is thick. Stir the chocolate. Slowly pour the chocolate into the egg mixture while beating. Quickly beat in the flour. Grease 4 oven safe custard cups with butter and dust with flour. Evenly distribute the walnuts between the cups. Evenly pour the batter on top of the walnuts. Bake for about 10 minutes. The edges and the tops should look done. You can not do the toothpick test on these cakes because the center is "lava"! Carefully invert the cups onto your chosen plate. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

*This batter can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Just let the batter reach room temperature before baking.
