Warm Chocolate Melting Cake


Mmmm. . . last summer Carrie and I tried a recipe that was in my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. It was good, but too long and complicated to ever make again.

Then I saw this recipe being made on “America’s Test Kitchen” -or something like that. Looked it up, tried it (actually, conned Carrie into making it) – easy peasy, we even made it again later that week! You should try it too! It’s delish.
