Chocolate Molten Lava cakes

My husband came across a recipe for chocolate Molten lava cakes. He came to me and said how about this being your next "project".. He knows how I like trying new things... I have saw these out in restaurants but have never had them..until now... oh my gracious sakes alive..these things should be illegal :)  just kidding  but oh my gosh are these things good.... chocolatey, rich and lucious and lovely... see I could go on and on but seriously, these are heavenly.  I will be making these again..and thinking about the variations... thinking instead of the cinnamon & wine adding a little orange to these, or using all white chocolate..mmm the possibilities.  and I whipped up some salted caramel sauce to drizzle over the top of these... yum... made them even more heavenly.  These would also be good with chocolate sauce or raspberry sauce drizzled over the top...or just sprinkled with powdered sugar... try these will love them...

Recipe adapted from a McCormick recipe

1 stick butter, softened
1 T. red wine

Stir in flour & cinnamon mixing until just combined.  Pour evenly in the 6 baking dishes.(should be about 1/2 to 2/3 full).  Place ramekins on baking sheet and bake for around 11 minutes center should be soft but outside should be firm.Remove from oven and take a knife and loosen edges of pan.  Immediately invert (being careful when inverting them so you don't break them open).  Place Hershey's kiss over top and drizzle immediately with hot caramel sauce.  Serve immediately.
