Mini Lava Cakes

I discovered these a while back on Pinterest and finally decided to give them a try last week.

I’ve made them twice since then because they are absolutely Dee-lish!

I love the ease of having a batch of these in my fridge/freezer so that way every time I want something sweet I can just heat them up and voila! Dessert is served šŸ™‚

Although I have been eating a lot healthier then I used to and staying away from fast food, I still need my dessert every now and then, or every night..

And these definitely satisfy my sweet-tooth!

They take 5 mins to make and you only need a few basic/pantry ingredients so you have no excuses not to make them! šŸ™‚

So Christmas is quickly approaching and I have a tons of shopping to do… I haven’t even started yet… Sigh… So I better stop procrastinating and get to it!

In the next few days I will be posting a few cookie recipes that are the perfect gifts for friends and family! I’m making cute cookie treat bags and bringing them to work so hopefully everyone will love them šŸ™‚

Stars: 5

Level: Easy

Comments: I love lava cakes! These are very easy to make! Great microwaved too so next time I will try to freeze a batch and heat them up as I need them. Make sure not to overbake them!

Negatives: Too addictive! šŸ™‚

Will I make these again? Yes I’ve made them a couple of time!
