These amazing Chocolate & Mint Lava Cakes are to die for. Dark chocolate and a twist of refreshing mint oozes out of these winter-themed Mint Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes. 

Rich, moist, fudgy, gooey, and warm chocolate cake exploding with melty minty centre that literally pools out from the cake at first bite. This looks luxurious and impressive, but its so easy to make. I like mint-chocolate anything, it’s like all my favourite desserts rolled into one. If you are a fan of mint and chocolate this dessert is for you.

200g dark chocolate, chopped
100g unsalted butter, chopped
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup (110 gr ) caster (superfine) sugar
1/4 cup (35 gr) plain (all- purpose) flour, sifted
1 tsp of mint extract
1-2 tbsp icing sugar
Cocoa + Butter or cooking spray, for coating


Step 1 : Preheat oven to 180 C or 350 F. 
Step 2: Melt your chocolate and butter in a microwave in 30 second breaks or over the saucepan over low heat and stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Step 3 : Place the eggs, extra yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add the chocolate mixture and flour and whisk again. Then add your mint extract and mix well.
Step 4 : Grease each ramekin with butter or cooking spray and add some cocoa powder around and coat each ramekin. 
Step 5 : Spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the mixture into the moulds/ ramekins. Add 1 tsp of chocolate ganache or chocolate spread in the centre of each mould. Add another 1-2 scoops of chocolate mixture to cover it. Make sure your ramekins are 3/4 filled. Do not over fill them, because they are going to rise. 
Step 6 : Place moulds/ ramekins on a baking tray and bake for 12- 13 minutes OR until the cake springs back when you touch the surface with your finger. 
Step 7 : Gently turn out the cakes immediately and dust with icing sugar. Serve it with ice cream or cream or more chocolate.
