  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • ¾ stick butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 prepackaged caramel candies unwrapped (make sure they are soft like the ones listed above)

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Add chocolate and butter to a microwave safe medium sized bowl and heat in intervals of 20 seconds stirring after each heating until completely melted and smooth.
  • Next whisk in all-purpose flour and confectioner's sugar until batter is smooth.
  • Lastly, whisk in two eggs and egg yolk and vanilla extract until the batter is well blended.
  • Using 4 (6 ounce) ramekins that have been sprayed with non-stick spray, fill each ramekin half way with cake batter. Next add two unwrapped caramels into each ramekin then sprinkle with sea salt (about a 1/8-1/4 teaspoon per cake depending on how much salty flavor you want). Spoon remaining cake batter over each cake.
  • Bake cakes for 12-14 minutes then remove from oven.
