Sex And Molten Chocolate Cakes With Callie Croix
Come on, what’s better than sex and chocolate for a holiday blog post? I’ve got both lined up for you today. This foolproof recipe is one that’s requested again and again when we have returning dinner guests. It’s easy yet so amazingly decadent you’ll look like a rock star when you serve these to your friends and family.
Here’s how to whip them up (it’s a cinch, don’t be scared):
4 squares BAKER’S Semi-Sweet/Bittersweet Chocolate (the darker the better, in my opinion)
1/2 cup butter (No, you can’t use margarine. It’s the holidays for crying out loud!)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
6 Tbsp. flour (that’s ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons, if that helps any)
Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to serve the warm cakes with. I prefer whipped cream, but use what you like.
Raspberries or strawberries to garnish
–preheat oven to 425°F.
-grease 4 small custard cups (I use a shot of Pam, but you can use butter if you want to); place on baking sheet.
-melt chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until butter is melted; whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Add whole eggs and egg yolks; mix well. Stir in flour. Spoon into prepared cups.
-bake 13 to 14 min. or until sides of desserts are firm but centers are still soft. Let stand 1 min. Carefully run small spatula or knife around cakes to loosen; invert into dessert plates. Serve warm with whipped cream/ice cream and a few raspberries on top.
You can also make the batter ahead of time (maybe up to a day or two at the most) and divide it up into the custard cups, then keep them in the fridge. Be sure you take them out at least an hour before baking so the batter can come up to room temperature and cook properly.
These are soooo good. Try ‘em. You’ll thank me.
For the second part of this holiday treat, I’d like to introduce you to the equally delicious Dillon Dumen. He’s the eldest brother on the Dumen ranch, and he’s six-foot-two inches of ex-Army alpha male sex appeal focused on one very lucky woman.
I’m giving away a PDF copy of Dillon’s Claim (the sequel to Deacon’s Touch) to a commenter here today, so don’t be shy to say hello!
Blurb: Charissa Myers attends a bachelorette weekend at a Texas guest ranch, knowing she’ll have to confront Dillon Dumen. The sexy cowboy is everything she’s ever wanted in a man but, gun-shy after a previous BDSM encounter gone bad, she denied her need to submit to the irresistible Dom. She expects his anger, but what she doesn’t expect is Dillon’s determination to finish what they started all those months ago.
Dillon doesn’t understand what spooked Charissa in the first place, but now that she’s on his turf, he wants a hell of a lot more from her than answers. He’s got two days to weaken her resistance and stake his claim once and for all. And this time, he’s not letting her go without a fight.
