Molten Chocolate Cake

I am a huge fan of chocolate, especially chocolate cake. One day this week I really wanted a good moist chocolate cake, I but didn't want to make a big fancy cake, I wanted something quick and easy. These cute chocolaty treats take 25 minutes to make from start to first bite. 
Molten Chocolate Cake

1/2 cup chocolate chips*
1/2 cup butter
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
3 egg whites
4 ramekins
1 tbsp confectioners sugar (for garnish) 

Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease the ramekins with butter, and set aside. Melt chocolate in the butter in a double boiler, set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Beat egg yolks and sugar then mix into the melted chocolate. Beat egg whites in a bowl until they form soft peaks. Fold the chocolate into the egg whites. Pour batter into the ramekins and bake for 7- 9 minutes. The outside of the cakes will be set and possibly crack but the inside will be moist and liquidity. 
Let them cool for a couple minutes, sprinkle with conf. sugar, and dig in with a spoon.

These cups of chocolate cake can be served with ice cream, fresh berries, or whip cream.

*You can use semi-sweet or dark chocolate. I prefer milk chocolate and that's what I used.

What's your favorite chocolate dessert?
