Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

I am telling you this is SO good, So easy, and Medicine for the SOUL! You will thank me for this find. I needed it, I had one of those days. One of those days where nothing else would do except CHOCOLATE. I searched and I found this, Oozing Chocolate Lava Cake recipe.

Here it is:

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes (it took me longer)

6 Ounces Semisweet Baking Chocolate
6 Ounces butter, diced. (it said room temp but mine came right out of the fridge and it worked fine)
3 eggs
1/2 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Flour
Butter for ramekins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. Butter Ramekins
2. Melt chocolate in double broiler. When melted, take off flame and
3. Stir in diced butter until it melts
4. In another bowl ( I used my Kitchen Aide) beat eggs and sugar until it starts to whiten
5. Stir in melted chocolate and then the flour ( i used a whisk) .
6. Cook for 10 minutes (see note)
7. Tip ramekins upside down onto dessert plates and serve.

Enjoy! So good you'll cry! As the OP said, "MOM this is 23 thumbs up!"

**note. 10 minutes was not long enough for my oven so the first time I let it go until the tops were visibly set like 20 minutes and the hubs loved it like this - more fudge like. The next time I let it go until the tops were just barely set buy still jiggly like 15 minutes - Super oozy gooey chocolate and the Girls loved it like this. I LOVED it all**

Amy's Twist (you know because I can't follow a recipe): Add a tablespoon of PEANUT BUTTER to the center before cooking. Just plop it in and cover it a bit with the chocolate mixture and voila:

Pure heaven. Not the best picture but I had to run and snap it before it (the cake) was gone.

Mock Fried Ice Cream

I am sure your thinking, Ice Cream? Are you kidding? Lady - did you not know that it is flippin freezing out side? I do know. As a matter of fact it is -8 here right now as I type. Brrrrrrrrr.

But I can't help what people want when they want it. See I usually post requested recipes - it is just as easy as emailing them. So it is my cousins birthday today and she wants my Mock Fried Ice Cream and she wants my Fettucine but today I am just posting this magically delicious dessert and perhaps later I will add a picture after we make it.

Ok so here it is:

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
1 cup butter - melted
1 1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans (optional if you like nuts)
1/2 cup coconut (optional as well)
6 cups Special K Cereal
2 tsp. Vanilla
Hot fudge and Caramel for garnish

Put ice cream out to soften. Blend last 6 ingredients together. Pour 1/2 of the mixture in bottom of a 9x13 inch cake pan. Spread softened ice cream on top of mixture, then add rest of topping. Put in freezer for one hour or until time to serve. Slice and serve topped with Hot Fudge or Caramel or both if it tickles your fancy.

So yummy and really easy. It is also a great dessert to make when you are having mexican food.
