Hey everyone! With Valentines Day around the corner I thought a nice chocolate dessert would be appropriate. Its super easy and full of ooey gooey chocolate in the middle. Whether you use milk chocolate or dark chocolate, your lava cakes will be a big hit! Dont forget to pair your lava with our creamy homemade whipped cream!!

Also, my friend Emily and I will be starting to do cooking videos regularly so she has joined the team. We're goofy and crazy so look out. Hope you guys enjoy and welcome to Hipstir Fresh Cooking Emily!
