I really don't know what is more satisfying than a big spoonful of gooey chocolate cake with melted chocolate dripping down your spoon. The iconic Valentine's Day dessert with a spin! I have always loved the idea of chocolate and spice and felt this was the perfect opportunity to jazz up the traditional lava cake!
My mouth is actually watering at the oozing center. If you're intimidated of the use of chili in this recipe, don't be! It's a nice warming taste that you can of course add less of if you are not a big fan of heat. The cinnamon and chili perfectly balance out the rich, sweet chocolate making it a go to dessert!
So if it's for Valentine's Day or just any day in general, make sure to give this a try the next time you're in the mood for some delicious lava cake!
