Molten Chocolate Cakes with Irish Cream

We've got St. Patrick's Day on the brain around here in the RecipeGirl house these days. I had been wanting to make these Molten Chocolate Cakes with Irish Cream for a long time now. Glad I did... yummy little treats.

I halved the recipe to make a quick and easy dessert at lunchtime for hubby and me. Very simple to whip up... the chocolate melts in the microwave with a little butter, then add a couple more ingredients and beat with an electric mixer, and pour into two little ramekins.

They puff up like little souffles. The Irish cream is simply a drizzle of Irish Cream liqueur. A great pairing!

You want to eat this just out of the oven to get the most out of the ooey-gooey, warm and decadent chocolate part hidden inside.

A quick and easy dessert for St. Paddy's Day!

This recipe can be found HERE.

This is one of the easiest yet tastiest desserts out there. I hope you two didn't get too silly at lunch with the Irish Cream & all!

I have looked at recipes for Molten Chocolate cakes for the last few years but have never made one yet. I finally bought the ramekin dishes and I have the Irish Cream - hmmm, I'm getting closer! Thanks for the recipe!

That looks so good and sounds so easy! Bookmarked.

I could dive right into that molten cake. Not very ladylike, I know, but honest.

Lori, are you reading my mind. I just bought a Molten Tin last week. They were on sale, so I bought two. Thanks to you I now have a recipe to try them out.

Always a great treat! Those look delicious and Irish cream seems like the perfect way to finish it.

Like Jenny, I was thinking of molten chocolate cakes after watching the Ultimate Recipe Showdown on the Food Network. I've never made them, because I don't have ramekins, but I may have to finally buy them.
