creme de la creme of chocolatey goodness.


I had originally wanted to work with fondant..since yesterday, but I just didn’t have the energy or heart to bake more cupcakes and work with fondant when my mom made mocha roll.. oh delishhhh mocha roll. So I helped/watched her make it and I iced/frosted and tasted (yummmmmy). I also was inspired by Pioneer Woman to try molten chocolate lava cake, so I did it. I must say I am proud. I thought it would be much harder! It is the perfect chocolate fix for your “I just need chocolate cuz it makes me happy” days. The recipe is from Tasty Kitchen by Brandielle I miss my son so much I actually ate the baked goods. (he’s with daddy visiting) oh and yes I have a 19 month old angel :) he would love this chocolate overload.

Chocolate Chips (Semi-sweet) yummmm.

I could eat them just like this. make sure to put the ramekins on a cookie sheet to bake!
