Cupids Chocolate Lava Cakes


I heart chocolate.  That is no lie.  And I am sure most all of you can say the same thing 🙂  I mean it’s CHOCOLATE, come on!

For all you chocolate lovers out there, I present to you a heaping helping of chocolate bliss!

Fudgy filled chocolaty heart shaped cakes for you and your cupid 🙂

This chocolate lava cake is without a doubt irresistible. 

The centers of these moist, delectable treats are oozing with sweetness.




Heart shaped ramekins, dusted with granulated sugar~


Chocolate + butter = a fabulous start to lava cake batter~


Add the eggs and mix up the batter and pour into ramekins~


I baked these in little heart shaped ramekins and when they were removed, they had this heart imprinted on them!

And to the ones who discovered chocolate:  Ever Grateful, Ever Thankful.


Are you ready to drench your mouth in chocolate?!


What are you making for Valentine’s Day dessert?


Or is someone “else” making you dessert on Valentine’s Day?


Are you going out or staying in?


Friday night we went out to dinner with friends and had a wonderful meal.  Saturday we went to see “Just Roll With It” with Adam Sandler and Jen Aniston.  It was HILARIOUS!   It was good to laugh that much 🙂  And tonight we have dinner reservations with 4 more friends to enjoy an Italian meal at a new restaurant we haven’t been to.  Happy Valentine’s to you!
