Chocolate Fudge Cakes for 2! The simple recipe for these molten lava-type cakes is on

Let me begin with: this is a recipe where diets do not belong.

I was going to wait until closer to Valentine’s Day to post this fabulously indulgent recipe, but I’m the queen of impatience. For me, “allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting” means putting them in the refrigerator to speed up the process. I also begin wearing flip flops in April and break out my scarves in August.

Speaking of impatience, I made a chocolate cake recipe that doesn’t require cooling before digging in. Hallelujah. And what’s more? These chocolate fudge cakes are ready in a flash.

This recipe reminds me of a chocolate molten cake. Hey, did you know that I use to waitress at Chili’s restaurant in college? Fajita rita Mondays, anyone? Chili’s dessert recipe, the molten lava cake, is one of their most popular desserts and it’s clear why. Rich, chocolate cake oozing with chocolate inside. My homemade version doesn’t really resemble a soufflé like most molten cakes; it’s more of a tiny chocolate brownie cake.
