Calling all brownie fans ...
This Chocolate Lava Mountain Dessert
is a chocolate lover’s idea of a great time.
Based on the idea of a chocolate lava cake, this super rich dessert features fudgy chocolate chunk brownies instead of chocolate cake as the base. It drips with molten chocolate ganache like a lava cake, but adds a gooey caramel center to sweeten the deal.
Even my camera drooled when it took a peek at this chunk of chocolate heaven before it opened up wide and swallowed the scene...
It was totally worth getting melted chocolate all over my camera so I could lick the spoon as I drizzled chocolate ganache (the fancy word for chocolate icing or glaze) down the sides of this unbelievably rich triple-chocolate dessert.
I can't be the only one who needs physical restraint when I see this much chocolate on one plate ...
This restaurant-inspired chocolate confection is surprisingly fast and easy with a boxed brownie mix
! Not kidding! And you can use purchased caramel sauce and chocolate sauce, too -- although I made easy chocolate ganache
in just a couple minutes, and that put this dessert over the (mountain) top.
Yes, chocolate makes bad days better, and good days great. Melted chocolate makes people stop in their tracks and gaze like deer in the headlights. You're staring at that picture ... right?
Here's the recipe so you can stop drooling and start baking. Enjoy!
