Molten Lava Cookie Cakes

These are fantastic right out of the oven, warmed up in the microwave later, or even at room temperature.  It is hard to eat just one!

Molten Lava Cookie Cakes


1/3 cup of butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup chocolate spread of your choice (Hershey’s chocolate spread, Nutella, World Market Dark Chocoalte, etc.)


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a standard muffin pan with non-stick spray, or use cupcake liners (if using silicone liners, spray those also).

Stir together all ingredients, except chocolate spread until you have a ball of dough.

Divide the dough into 24 equal portions, about 1 tablespoon each.

Flatten a dough ball slightly and place it into the bottom of a muffin cup/cupcake liner.

Put about 1 teaspoon of chocolate spread on top of the cookie bottom. (You can add more if you like!)

Flatten another cookie ball and place over the chocolate spread, pressing lightly around the edges to seal it with the lower cookie.


Repeat for the other 11 cookie cakes.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.  Cool cookies for about 5 minutes before eating, the filling will still be hot though, so watch out!
