Molten Chocolate Cakes...oh and it's MOVING WEEK!

I'm back! It's been a few days but I was having such a great time with B! We always have so much fun...even if we are just sitting around watching The Notebook 15 billion times and Facebook stalking people :] That saying about true friends are the friends that can go long periods of time without seeing each other or even talking but as soon as they meet up again it's like no time has passed at all...that is B and I! Saturday we went to one of those places where you paint your own pottery, we painted mugs. Then later that night we somehow came across this recipe for Molten Chocolate Cakes and of course we HAD to make them! So it was off to Walmart at 1 AM! We used a regular sized cupcake tin and they were the perfect size for one person.
They came out of the pan so easy, and it was even easier to cut the holes in the middle for the hot fudge.
We also used dark chocolate fudge cake mix, it was super fluffy and moist and just delicious, for the hot fudge we used the Hershey's brand, because it tastes like Hershey's chocolate instead of having that weird hot fudge taste.

We put them in the bowls before we added the ice cream on top. For the ice cream we used mint chocolate chip because that's what B had in her freezer, we thought it turned out way better than it would with plain vanilla!
Next, more chocolate on the top! The recipe says to use chocolate topping that hardens on the ice cream, but we bought chocolate peanut butter flavored instead and didn't think that would work with the we just used more fudge!
They were AH-MAZING!!!!
B and her Molten Chocolate Cake!
Me excited to eat our tasty creations!

This is what delicious desert looks like.

These are the leftovers...that are still moist and delicious today!
About the time our middle of the night baking sessions normally end :]

It was a GREAT weekend and I was sad to leave but I was needed back at our apartment to help get it ready for the move. My morning of getting the apartment ready for the walk-thru with the manager started with the mini-blinds falling on me when I pulled them up to open the windows, did I mention I was getting the apartment ready for the final walk-thru? OF COURSE that would happen to me. While Ronnie was at work I started painting over spots on doors and walls, BUT the white paint they gave us didn't match, so I ended up painting most of the doors, door jams and baseboards! THEN that paint smells like cat pee and rotting wood, so of course when they came to do the walk-thru the lady was like "There is a definite pet smell, so you will probably have to pay to have the carpet replaced." Ronnie just spent the weekend steam cleaning the carpets and removing stains, the place smelled better than it did when we moved in, when I got home last night. Oh well, hopefully it smells better when the paint dries!

I am so excited to just pack the truck up and leave! I can't wait for my mom to get here on Thursday night, I hope we have time for her to see a little bit of Charleston before we leave on Friday. Before that, I want to collect some Spanish moss, and go down to the beach one last time.

I'm glad that Ronnie has a month of leave, and I'm glad we will get to spend it back home with our family and friends and I'm SO lucky to know, but not for sure, I at least have him until mid-April. But the time when he could just be gone is getting close, it's a sad feeling just hovering over us and I know he feels it too, but we can't let that get to us. We can't obsess and worry over the inevitable, we can only live in the moment, and make the most of the time we are given.

Tonight I have my husband home, and at this moment that is all I could ever ask for.


  1. Ate a leftover one today, and it was still amazing :) Best dessert ever. We did a great job!

  2. I know! we had leftovers last night...The chocolate exploded all over my microwave so we only had just enough for the insides but Ronnie really liked it!
