EASY Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake. BEST DESSERT EVER. - The Cookie RookieEvery couple months, I join up with my friend Meg from The Housewife in Training Files to work together on a post!! We pick a new ingredient or set of ingredients, and let our imaginations run wild.  In the past we have done Sweet Potatoes, and Blueberry and Honey.  They have been some of my very favorite posts! Meg creates the most amazing healthy meals, and her photography is some of my favorite on the web!

This month, we are both BUSY.  Well, I’m kind of busy, but she is really really busy.  She is getting married NEXT MONTH!! So exciting.  I just cannot imagine how she balances a full time job, wedding planning, and blogging like a champ.  Since life is a bit crazy, we chose some easy ingredients for our challenge.  Easy isn’t a bad thing in this case.  It just doesn’t get better than Peanut Butter and Chocolate.  A match made in heaven. photo (13)

I’ve been trying to cook healthier lately, we are prepping for our 1 year anniversary honeymoon in august, and we both want to trim down a bit before then.  But when Meg said Peanut Butter and Chocolate, I knew I had to go all out.  Indulging once in a while is worth it sometimes.  I found a great recipe for Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lava Cake on Recipe.com and could not wait to try it.  I’m not a baker…so I was nervous…but it was so easy.  And SO delicious.  I mean…wow.

I baked these in little Ramekins (I didn’t know what they were until yesterday…even though I owned some.  I thought they were dipping sauce containers……cookie rookie, remember?), and they worked great.  I filled mine with a bit too much batter.  I filled them almost to the top, it would have worked better to leave about 2 centimeters at the top to give them room to grow.  But my overgrown little lava cakes tasted just as great, trust me. EASY Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake.
