Chocolate Volcano Cakes

Butter for ramekins
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup fine sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I used semisweet)
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
Butter four 2/3-cup ramekins, set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Using a microwave or a double boiler, melt together 3/4 cup of chocolate chips and the butter. Set aside to cool.

In a separate bowl, combine eggs, sugar, flour. Add cooled chocolate mixture, and mix until blended. Fold in white chocolate chips (I really prefer a 1/4 cup of semisweet).

Divide mixture evenly among ramekins and place on baking sheet. Bake until tops are shiny and cracked and chocolate beneath is hot and gooey, about 20 min ( an extra few minutes makes them better). Eat when cooled a bit, remembering that the ramekin and chocolate are very hot.

Even Rex's dad was impressed. Eat these with a cup of milk.
