So here it is: Red Lobster Chocolate Lava Cakes
Number of Servings: 6 persons
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 6 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 10 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

- 1 (10 ounces) package frozen raspberries thawed, puréed in a blender
- Fresh raspberries, optional
- 1/2 cup heavy cream, softly beaten
- Fresh mint sprigs, optional

1. Spray inside 6 individual custard cups or soufflé dishes with nonstick cooking spray; then set aside. In a small heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate, stirring until smooth. Add butter and sugar; stir until melted.
2. Pour chocolate mixture into large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, and baking powder.
3. With electric mixer at medium-high speed, beat chocolate mixture; add eggs and flour mixture; beat about 6 minutes until thickened. Divide mixture evenly among prepared dishes; cover with plastic wrap. Freeze at least 2 hours or overnight.
