1/2 cup heavy cream
8 more ounces of chocolate
2 cups of water to boil

Step 1: Preheat oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit .
Step 2: Melt and stir 8 ounces of chocolate with butter.

Step 8: Add 8 ounces of chocolate to heat-safe bowl.
Step 9: Place bowl on top of pot of water.
Step 10: Stir in heavy cream as needed.
Step 11: Remove from heat once mixture forms.
Step 12: Check on cakes in the oven. If you overcook them, you can always add some of the heavy cream-chocolate mix to the center for extra lava.
Step 13: Using a spoon, top each cake with heavy cream-chocolate mix.
Top with raspberries.
