Chocolate Lava Cakes

Absolutely delicious!  Austin called them "goodness in a bowl" and Charlotte helped me put them together. If you like the edge of brownies, you should enjoy this recipe.  I think I let them cook a little too long so they were more like brownies in the middle than gooey lava centers, but they were still delicious.
