Chocolate Lava Cake

To-die-for, melt-in-your-mouth, ooey-gooey chocolate cake from The Pampered Chef Chocolate cookbook.

In the microwave.

In ten minutes.

I’m sorry, Weight Watchers who??

Okay, six easy steps. Ready?

1. Mix up a chocolate cake batter. Just like the box says. Then put it in your Deep Covered Baker. (Don’t have one? You need one. It’s just like a slow-cooker, only fast. There’s even a recipe book to get you started. Oh, and it also comes in taupe, if you’re not crazy about cranberry.)

2. Drop a can of frosting (that’s right, a whole can) over the top of the not-baked cake by the scoop-ful.

3. Put the cover on, and microwave on high for 10 minutes.

4. Make the ganache topping. (heaven!) Put 1/2 cup chocolate chips and half of a small tub of whipped topping in a microwave-safe container, and microwave until the chocolate chips are all melty. Stir.

5. Pour the ganache over the top of the baked, and still hot, cake. Try not to lick the rest of the ganache out of the container. (Don’t worry if you can’t resist temptation.)plus ganache
6. Serve, with a spoon. There’s lots of gooey, syrupy stuff on the bottom you won’t want to miss!

We only went through half of it at the party. So I was left with the other half in my refrigerator. Darn! Hate it when that happens! (Warm it up before you eat the leftovers. Trust me. A world of yumminess!)
