Ingredients

Sinfully rich, easy yet fancy, our chocoholic's dream recipe for Chocolate Lava Cakes is modeled after the ones we might find on a restaurant menu. These are packed with an eruption of warm, flowing, decadent chocolate from the inside out.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 15 min

 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 sticks butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


 

Directions

 
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat 6 ramekin or custard cups with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
     
  2. In a microwave-safe medium bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave for 1 minute. Continue to melt at 15-second intervals until chocolate is smooth.
     
  3. Add flour and sugar to chocolate mixture; mix well. Stir in eggs and yolks until smooth, then stir in vanilla.
     
  4. Spoon batter evenly into ramekins. Bake 12 to 14 minutes; remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes. Edges should be firm and center will be soft. Loosen around edges with a knife and invert onto dessert plates.
