Chocolate Melting Cake


This picture really does not do this cake justice. Inside that thin crust is molten chocolate awesomeness. THE ABSOLUTE BEST molten chocolate cake I ever had was on a Carnival Cruise. On the last night my family asked a crew member for the recipe, and sure enough, they gave it to us! My dad scaled the recipe down from 1,000 servings, and here it is:
