In my home, the ultimate indulgence is warm -gooey Salted Caramel Molten Lava Cakes.  Rich dark chocolate, blended with salted caramel, topped with salted caramel ice-cream, it is a match made in dessert-heaven.  It’s our go-to dessert for family game nights or any instant celebrations in the house.

Individual Servings

Since this is a decadent dessert, I like to make individual portions using these Silicone Cupcake Liners. These liners serve three great purposes in my home: First, the silicone molds don’t get hot to the touch after baking, so handling is super easy, my kids bake with these often. Second, taking the lava cakes out of these molds is a breeze. Simply, invert them on to your serving dish, and they slip out nice and easy. Third, it does portion control for me. I take one, finish it and feel satisfied that I had a full dessert. After that, I don’t feel like going for seconds, like I would be tempted to, if it were a cake:-)
