Tonight as a special dessert for Trudy and Kyle, I made chocolate peanut butter lave cakes! Trudy and I had this dessert back when Richard was one month old and she came down to Branson and we went our for lunch at Chili's. We shared their chocolate peanut butter lava cake. It was one of the best desserts we had ever had. So for my visit, I decided we had to have lava cakes!
This is a super easy dessert to make. First you need the following:
plus, 1 cup of water, 3 TBSP peanut butter and 1 TBSP confectioners sugar, ramkins (or cupcake pan; regular or jumbo size). This recipe makes 12 regular cupcake lava cakes (adjust the number boxes of mix for amount you need).
Mix the batter as directed with the one cup of water. Pour mix into ramkins, cupcake pan, etc. Be sure you greased the pans first!!! Mix peanut butter and confectioners sugar together. This will help the peanut butter from separating while baking. Then pour in some of the Hershey's fudge and put a dollop of peanut butter on each.
Bake and cool as directed. Tip each cake upside down on plate and drizzle chocolate topping from mix on each. Finally add a scoop of your favorite ice cream and either hot fudge or hard candy shell to ice cream. Then ENJOY!
