Surely you can eat more that two. Here is a version that I found for making a smaller batch. Haven't tried it yet, but will soon.
Warm Chocolate Melting Cake
Warm melting chocolate cake at home!!! Did the conversions from Carnival's jumbo recipe and tried it...I think we've got it! Here's the recipie I used:
8 oz. dark chocolate (i used 1 1/3 C. semi-sweet choc. chips)
8 oz. butter (i used one stick salted, one unsalted)
5 eggs (room temperature)
5/8 C. sugar
2/3 C. flour
Melt chocolate & butter over low heat. In mixing bowl, mix eggs and sugar, then add flour. Slowly whisk into the melted chocolate mixture. Pour into greased (i used Baker's Joy) ramekins. (i tried 4 oz. & 7 oz. -- 7 oz. is just too big!) Bake at 400 F for 12-14 minutes. Yield: 36 oz. unbaked batter; 8 servings if you use a 4 oz. ramekin.
Adjust times according to the size ramekin you use, and the texture you prefer. In a 4 oz. ramekin for 13 min., the texture on the inside of the cake was a little heavier than pudding, kind of like a loose fudge. I also did some in my convection oven at 350F. 13 minutes in a 4 oz. ramekin yielded a smooth, hot fudge sauce-like center. In the 7 oz. size, 16 min. at 350F in the convection oven produced a pudding-like texture in the middle. Regular oven, 7 oz. size, at 400F, smooth, heavy sauce-like texture resulted after 14 min.

We were just on the Imagination and my 10 year old son loved this desert. Can't wait to make it for him.
Actually, if yah want a quick and easy proxy for Carnival's melting cake, just pick up a Duncan Hines Chocolate Molten Lava Cake mix. Now nothin tastes the same as when you're floating on the Caribbean bein waitin on hand and foot, but yer 10 yo will never know the difference. Biggest difference I notice, I'm told to get it myself when I order seconds. Service is POOR at my house. Make sure yah serve it warm outta the oven with vanilla ice cream.
