So dreamy

This is the dessert that I chose to take with me tonight when I go scrapbooking. They look awesome and I can not wait to bite into one later and see just how dreamy they really are. I will come back and let you know tomorrow. *update* these were very good and everyone loved them. My only complaint is that it was tricy to tell when I should take these out of the oven. The center was raised and really jiggly after 22 minutes of baking time but I new I had to take them out before they burnt.

And do not forget to head over to
Jessica's blog and check it out, she has a great tip for melting the chocolate for this recipe that is so easy and a breeze to clean up.
