Molten Lava Cake for Valentines!!

Not such a good idea....This is not my kind of cake...My husband loved it and my friend too. They said it was rich....and yumi...Maybe thats the problem...Im not a fan of too rich, too dark chocolate taste. Still, I gave it a try cause it has such a great presentation and would be great for Valentines. I used Paula Deen Recipe and here it is.I hope you like it!!! Also, if you have a recipe thats its just out of this world, feel free to send to me. Thanks!!
P.S: Sorry about the picture, but the light in my kitchen is that bad!!!!

6 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
2 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and orange liqueur. Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.

I know, You guys probably thinking : waz up with all this guava pies....Well...I really like guava, I think its a great igredient to use....So, this pie I came up with by just mixing a bunch of igredients I really like

Cracker Guava Cream Pie

2 cans of condensed milk
1 can of whole milk or skim milk ( really dont matter on this recipe )
2 tbsp of corn starch
2 egg yolks
1 box of saltines crackers.
1 can of guava paste
Cream: Mix all the cream igredients together and Take it to a medium heat on the stove , mixing always until you have a nice crem. You need to mix otherwise will get lumpy, and even if it does, you can still use the blender and it will be ok. Let it cool to room temperature.
Guava: Mix the guava paste with 2 cups of water and let it melt. when melted, reserve.
Assembling: You gonna use enough cream to cover the bottom of the dish, then cover with crackers, then use the guava. You gonna repeat this process, until nothing is left.

It's very nice and tasty. Hope you guys enjoy!!
