You won’t believe how quickly these come together! These five basic ingredients, stir together in less than 5 minutes, and are hot out of the oven in less than 30 minutes. This delicious recipe takes Chocolate Lava Cakes to a whole new level!

Makes 6 ½ cup sized cakes

Total Prep Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients
6 eggs
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 (4 ounce) package semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup Irish Whiskey
6 scoops ice cream

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and powdered sugar. Break baking chocolate into squares and place in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30-60 seconds. Stir, then return to the microwave for another 30-60 seconds. Repeat until the chocolate is melted.

Add melted chocolate to the egg and powdered sugar batter, whisk in cocoa powder and 1/3 cup whiskey. Spoon batter into 6 ramekins greased with nonstick baking spray (or into 6 large muffin tins which have been generously sprayed with nonstick baking spray and floured with cocoa powder.) Bake for 22-30 minutes, or just until the edges of the cake firm up and the center is soft but not jiggly. Remove from oven.

Cakes baked in ramekins can be served immediately. Cakes baked in individual muffin tins will need to be cooled for 1-2 minutes before being gently turned out onto a cooling sheet.

Serve within 10 minutes for the most gooey chocolate in the center of your cakes. Enjoy!
