Preheat oven to 400°F. Butter four 3/4 cup ramekins; set aside. 

In heatproof bowl placed over sauce­pan of hot (not boiling) water, melt butter and chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove bowl from pan; let cool slightly. 

Meanwhile, in large bowl, using electric mixer on medium speed, beat eggs, egg yolks and sugar until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Using spatula, fold in chocolate mixture. Stir in flour.

Divide two-thirds of chocolate mixture among reserved ramekins. Add 1/2 tsp caramel spread in centre of each. Spoon remaining chocolate mixture over top. 

Place ramekins on baking sheet; bake until cakes start to set around edges, but centres are still slightly jiggly, about 10 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes. Using knife, gently loosen edges. Unmould onto plates. Serve immediately. 

Test kitchen tip

The secret to a perfectly runny caramel centre? Make sure the caramel spread is very cold.
Place it in the refrigerator at least 2 hours before preparing the recipe. This prevents the caramel from mixing with the chocolate batter while it bakes.
