Individual Molten Brownie Cakes




I love individual desserts, and I LOVE serving them to other people. There's something so enchantingly fancy about a personal dessert, especially when it's served in a ramekin! This recipe for individual molten brownie cakes is awesome if you want to impress people with your fancy culinary skill, even if you don't have any at all. They're actually ridiculously easy to make, and no one will ever know they came from a box! 

Also...Chocolate. Do I really need to say more?


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 box brownie mix ( I like HERSHEY'S!)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • melted butter
  • powdered sugar
  • vanilla ice cream
  • 6-12 Hershey's kisses
  • semi sweet chocolate chips
Serves 6 (7 ounce ramekins)


DIRECTIONS

 Chocolate Decorations



  1. Line a flat pan with foil, and coat it with a very thin layer of powdered sugar.
  2. Put about a handful of chocolate chips into a ziplock sandwich bag and zap it in the microwave for a minute or two, or until it is completely melted.
  3.  Cut a small piece off of the tip of your bag.
  4. Squeeze the melted chocolate onto the sugar-coated foil into designs and shapes
  5. Once the chocolate has cooled and re-solidified, or when you are ready to use your decorations, gently peel them away from the foil.

Molten Brownie Cakes

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Coat ramekins with a little melted butter and powdered sugar.
  3. Mix brownie mix, egg, oil, and milk together until combined well.
  4. Spoon brownie batter into each ramekin. They should be about 3/4 full.
  5. Place ramekins on a baking sheet (so it's easier to take them all out at once!), and bake for 36-40 minutes, or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
  6. While still hot, make a slice about an inch wide in the center of each brownie, open it to press a kiss or two inside, and then close it back up to allow the chocolate to melt.
  7. Allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  8. Top with a scoop of ice cream and chocolate designs to garnish and enjoy!
