It was only a matter of time before my chocolate addiction struck again. Out of nowhere I was in the mood for a molten lava cake over the weekend. I was also under the misconception that it would take me an eternity to make my own and almost didn’t bother to do any research regarding that amazing dessert. Once I learned just how easy it is to prepare it in the comfort of my own home, I was more than game. Wouldn’t you run into the kitchen if you knew that it takes less than 30 minutes and only 5 ingredients to indulge in the molten lava goodness? That’s exactly what I did.

Ho Ho Ho. It’s Christmas Eve.

Few days feel as special as the eve of a holiday or celebration. I have mentioned before that I am lover of eves of big and small occasions alike. This one in particular deserves extra recognition as it’s not only a holiday but also a deeply spiritual day for me and my family. Our hearts are filled with excitement, gratitude and wonder as we ponder the events of this night so many years ago in our hearts. We celebrate the birthday of Jesus with a special cake every year, singing “Happy Birthday” and blowing out candles. Grandma will prepare her chocolate cake with white frosting while I wanted to go a different route this year. Brownies and chocolate started to swirl in my head and before I knew it, I had whipped up a batter of ooey gooey red velvet brownies and prepared the most outrageous chocolate frosting in history. No really. It’s epic!
