You don’t have to be a professional chef to enjoy a gourmet dessert. These mouthwatering treats will transport you to heaven in just a few simple steps. Whether you want to wow your sweetie on Valentine’s Day, cook a loved one a special birthday dessert, or just want to treat yourself (we won’t tell!), this molten chocolate cake recipe is guaranteed to please.

Start by adding chopped bittersweet chocolate and unsalted butter to a large bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of boiling water and stir until almost melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir mixture until smooth. In a separate bowl, use a mixer to combine egg whites and salt, slowly adding in sugar while mixing. In a small dish, use a fork to whisk egg yolks together, before adding to the chocolate. Gently fold the egg whites into this chocolate and egg yolk mixture and spoon into individual serving dishes on a large cookie sheet.

Cover the entire sheet and dishes with plastic wrap and freeze. Once frozen, remove plastic wrap and bake.

It’s that easy! Top the molten chocolate cakes with sweet whipped cream and cocoa powder for the ultimate decadent combo.
