If you were to ask me what I would choose to eat for dessert, I would always say some kind of chocolate.

Every time we go out to eat, I always look at the dessert menu first.

I need to know what to save space in my stomach for, you know ?!

If there is some chocolate on the menu – and there usually is – I always always choose it.

My favorite is a super decadent chocolate cake, but I also want to take any kind of chocolate dessert.

I feel like melted lava cake is very popular to have on menus, but I've always dreamed of making it at home myself.

Add salted caramel melted lava cookies.

Definitely 100% shekel worthy.

What is a molten lava cake?

A molten lava cake is like mimicking a volcano.

Hot, nasty chocolate liquid is in the middle of the half-baked cake, and when you slice it in half, it seeps out into a river of chocolate goodness.

Mine doesn't stay afloat in the middle

You've cooked it too long!

You just have to cook it until the middle is a little vague and then immediately pull it out of the oven, otherwise it will stick afterwards.

Mine fell apart when I turned it over

That's probably because it wasn't structurally cooked enough.

The pages may have looked cooked, but it structurally could not hold when you turned it over.

I don't like dark chocolate.

You can make this with semisweet chocolate chips if you prefer it or milk chocolate.

What can I serve this with?

A huge scoop of ice cream on top, DUH!

Should I use the salted caramel?

No, you definitely don't have to, but that's a third of the goodness, isn't it ?!

Can I do this in advance?

You can make dough ahead of time, but no, this cake needs to be made and eaten right away.

So I can't freeze it.

Correct.
