Heat 3/4 cup cream just to a boil and pour over 6 ounces high quality chocolate pieces in a glass bowl. Add 2 tbsp butter and 1 tsp vanilla and stir until smooth. Use while warm; if sauce should coolm reheat over simmering water, taking care not to overheat or it will separate.

Just before serving, place the cakes in the preheated oven and bake for 8 minutes until set around the edges-the center of cakes should be runny. Turn out of molds immediately onto individual serving plates. Top with chocolate and serve warm with good vanilla ice cream.

Personal Notes:
This is a chocolate lovers delight. Dave and I first had this dessert on our anniversary in Hawaii. Whenever I make this, it brings back great memories. It is a very rich dish, so you can serve 1/2 to each person (or couples can share!).
