The One on Valentine’s Day

Let’s be real for a second, the hustle and bustle of motherhood makes love look a little different from what it used to. Now love looks like folded laundry, a nap, clean dishes, taking the kids for 30 minutes so Mama can just.have.some.peace. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be super expensive either; sometimes the simple gesture of a homemade gift or card can mean the world. It means you took a moment to think of me and what I would like. So, on this Valentine’s Day I give you a super yummy and satisfying dessert from 100 Days of Real Food. Simple recipe and the ingredients are probably something you have on hand (for those of you that need a last-minute Valentine’s Day idea).

I give you– 4 Ingredient Molten Lava Cake

Ingredients:

  • 8 TBSP of butter (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 TBSP sugar

Instructions:

  1. Preheat over to 450 degrees.
  2. Line muffin pan with liners. (I used my silicone muffin liners since they are non-stick and super easy for clean up)
  3. Melt butter and chocolate chips together over low heat until smooth. Let cool slightly.
  4. Whisk eggs and sugar together. Stir in the chocolate mixture until well combined.
  5. Divide mixture into muffin cups and bake until cakes are puffed up, but still jiggly in the center–about 6 to 8 minutes.
  6. Turn upside down onto a plate and garnish. (I used powdered sugar and raspberries like she did but feel free to experiment).
