Coat the bottom and sides of four 6 oz ramekins with non-stick baking spray.
Melt chocolate and butter: In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter and chocolate for about 1 minute on medium power.
Stir and repeat heating at 15-second intervals, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
