Molly’s Niece’s Marshmellow Molten Cakes

2 2/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2/3 cup white sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
12 large marshmellows

Melt chocolate and butter over med-low heat, stirring frequently (or melt in microwave and combine) until melted and combined. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour.

Fill 12 greased and floured muffin tins with one spoonful of batter. Press a marshmellow into the center of each muffin hole. Spoon remaining batter equally over all marshmellows until batter is gone.

Bake in a 350 oven until tops are puffed and crackly (12-15 minutes)

Once you try them, you’ll be a believer…I promise!
