Welcome to Treat to Eat! Today I will share a fantastic recipe for you and your loved ones. There are many things to show your love with those you hold dear to your heart. One thing that I think is easy and universal that everyone loves is food. Food makes people feel good inside and can create long lasting memories. A lot of memories, I have with loved ones are of baking and cooking. You can make special meals with them or even make a meal for them. When I think of Valentine’s Day foods, the first thing I think of is strawberries, and chocolate. These to are a Valentine’s Day classic. For this recipe you can add these to elements to make it even more special.

 

Delicious Chocolate Lava Cake with Chocolate covered Strawberries:

Ingredients:

  • Butter as needed(to butter the ramekins)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 3.5 ounces of chopped dark chocolate
  • 5 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon of vanilla extract

 

Steps:

  1. Generously butter the inside of 4 (5 1/2 ounce) ramekins. Place them in a casserole dish.
  2. Whisk together egg yolks, eggs, and sugar in a bowl until light, foamy, and lemon colored.
  3. Melt chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes.
  4. Stir melted chocolate mixture into egg and sugar mixture until combined.
  5. Sift cocoa powder into the mixture; stir to combine.
  6. Sift flour and salt into the mixture; stir to combine into a batter.
  7. Stir vanilla extract into the batter.
  8. Transfer batter to a resealable plastic bag. Snip one corner of the bag with scissors to create a tip.
  9. Divide batter evenly between the prepared ramekins; tap gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
  10. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  11. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  12. Arrange the ramekins in a casserole dish. Pour enough hot tap water into the casserole dish to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  13. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
  14. Loosen the edges from the ramekin with a knife. Invert each cake onto a plate and dust with powdered sugar
