Mochaccino Caramel Lave Cakes
These were fantastic and super easy to make. Instead of coffee cups I used ramikins and then turned them out onto a plate and dusted with powdered sugar and served with ice cream. They were a huge hit in my home. I'll be making these again for sure!
Quick and Yummy
This is a great recipe for those wonderful afternoon treats with friends or family. Put a scoop of ice cream on top for added pleasure!!!! Yummy!
They were VERY VERY GOOD! THANK YOU!!
Not too difficult
My daughter and I made these and the recipe was simple enough for her to do most of the work.
I absolutely love this recipe.
Mochaccino-Caramel Lava Cakes
They were easy to make and my family loved them. I serviced them with homemade coffee ice cream and whipped cream. Will make the cakes again for a special event, such as birthdays. I used instant expresso powder instead of coffee for a richer coffee flavor.
Mochaccino-Caramel Lava Cakes
I've made these at least 6 times in the past month--trying different kinds of chocolate as well as the Treasures (Truffles do not work!), and they have come out great! These actually re-heat pretty good in the microwave as well. Several people who tried them at work asked for the recipe! The fact that these are so easy to make, don't take a lot of time and can be eaten in the cup,well that 5 stars for me! Its a keeper!
How cute is it to serve small coffee cakes that match the size of your cup of coffee! And the tastes blend very well with coffee, too! This one has my vote for a simple, yet unusual thing to serve to unexpected company!!!
