Chocolate Lava Cake
For our 6 month wedding anniversary I wanted to make something really rich and full of chocolate. I scoured the internet and finally found the perfect idea. Molten Chocolate Lava Cake. I first watched this video, then I found this recipe from a really cool blog The Pioneer Woman which was a little more straightforward for me. I sort of combined the knowledge from both with what I had on hand, and made these!
I only had large ramekins, like the kind used for french onion soup, so these lava cakes were HUGE and really way too much to handle. Kyle finished his but I could NOT! I topped the cakes with Breyer's coffee ice cream, a sprinkle of powdered sugar, and some hot fudge.
I wish I could explain to you how amazing these were. Does it help to say that for 3 days after we ate these, if my mind was somewhat blank, the image of these cakes popped in my head and I had to resist the urge to run in the kitchen and make more?
