Chocolate lava cakes are so delicious you’ll never want to go back to normal cakes.

I was mixing the powder, the milk and the melted chocolate when one of my roommates banged on the door.

“Dude, turn off the oven. It’s starting to smell like chocolate lava cakes,” he yelled.

I quickly turned off the oven and dropped the bowl. I didn’t even get to lick the bowl.

“That was close,” I said.

“Yeah, I know. I’m going to bed. Good night,” he said and left.

“Good night, Tom,” I yelled after him.

I got out the ingredients and started to mix them together. I added the vanilla extract and the melted chocolate. I put it in the bowl, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the chocolate lava cake my roommates were going to taste.

I finally decided to take a bite of the cake. It was delicious. I took another and another until there was none left.

I couldn’t wait for my roommates to taste it. I was sure they were going to love it. I put the bowl in the fridge to cool down, but I couldn’t sleep. I was too excited.

I woke up early the next morning and made the chocolate lava cakes again. I put them in the fridge, but I couldn’t help but eat one while they were still in the bowl.

I didn’t get to eat them all, but I was really happy with how they turned out. My roommates were even more thrilled than I was.

They kept asking me where I got the cake and how I made it. I tried to hide how excited I was, but it was really hard. I was so happy with how everything turned out.

The last thing I wanted to do was ruin the moment, so I lied and said I made them myself. But I knew they knew the truth. I was really lucky that my roommates were such good friends.

What is the recipe for easy molten chocolate lava cakes?

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
