    Good! I would use regular sugar than powdered sugar but still good.

    It turned out very good but you might want add something. Eat it with ice cream or something like that.

    I've made this twice this week, and it will definitely be a go-to for desserts. The minimal ingredients and how quick it is to make makes it that much better! My only complaint is that there has to be a trick to timing pulling them out of the oven. My first try cooked all the way through and my second try fell apart coming out of the pan. Both tasted amazing anyways though!

    you can put vegetable spray and cocoa powder on the pans so that it doesn't stick

    9 minutes was to long for me. They only had a little lava so i suggest 8 minutes. Other than that these where super good!

    I work for Yummly. My son kept begging to make chocolate lava cake because he saw them on tv and so we whipped up this recipe together. They turned out so delicious! The center is super moist and so good. We topped ours with hot fudge, yum! Would definitely make again. I cooked mine about 2 minutes longer than the time stated.

    Great!! They taste amazing!
    Mines didn’t shrink down 😕 and the taste is different than expected I guess bc I used whites chocolate also. Other than that, it’s delicious 😋

    Incredible. Super simple recipe. Left them in for exactly 9 minutes 20 seconds on 425°F and they came out with a wonderfully moist texture and an ooey-gooey center. I served with a ring of powdered sugar and hot fudge sauce drizzled over the top. 10/10 will make again.

    Be careful not to over bake. Left them in the oven for 12 minutes instead of 9 and they were ever so slightly burnt.

    Cooked them a little too long but they were alright.
