It’s Valentines Day- Let’s Eat Chocolate

I found this recipe' when I was searching for a healthier version of chocolate cake. This is so delicious. I have made this several times and, as a cook who is not a great baker, it has never failed me. Today I made it in oversized muffin cups instead of a baking pan. NOTE: you may need to shave about five minutes off of the baking time. Ovens vary. Enjoy!
