    I'm having a last minute visit with my parents tomorrow night, and I wanted to make a quick, tasty chocolate dessert. I don't want it to be too big, since it's only for 4 people (and I don't need leftovers!!!). Thanks for any suggestions.

    This is obviously too late, but if you need one for the future:

    Chocolate Lava Cakes

    4 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    1 Stick of Butter (not margarine)
    3 Eggs
    3/4 cup Sugar
    1/4 cup Flour
    1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
    Pinch of Salt

    Preheat oven to 400*.
    Butter and sugar 4 - 4-5 oz. ramekins.
    Melt chocolate and butter in microwave. Stir until completely melted.
    In a separate bowl, whisk eggs. Then add sugar, flour, vanilla, and salt; whisk together.
    Add chocolate mixture to egg mixture and whisk to combine.
    Pour batter into ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until tops are firm and beginning to crack.
    Remove from oven and let set for 10 minutes. Run a knife along the outside of the cakes before you turn upside down on a plate. Don't let the cakes set longer than 10 minutes or you won't be able to get them out. Serve with ice cream.
