Questions & Replies

  1. I managed to make this correctly but I think you should specify what the sugar mixture is other than that I have no complaints.
     
  2. Is it really lava? I mean does the chocolate really flow out like a lava?

  1. I loved it, seemed a little sketch at first but they turned out amazing. I would recommend creaming the sugar with the butter, also make sure you don't overcook them! I made a cream cheese frosting to go with it
