If there existed an ice cream version of me. . .Little Damage would be selling me in spades. They are the sole reason I feel badly about my lactose intolerance…

These are absolutely adorable. . .for Witches and non-magical folk alike. Best part, chocolate and cuteness aside? Peanut butter filled!

You know, I kind of always felt this way as a kid but I never really verbalized it. . .
Every once in a blue moon a cinnamony, oatmeal chocolate chip cookie would also masquerade as an oatmeal raisin. Honesty really seems to be a problem with these sweets! It frankly annoyed me just as much because sometimes I didn’t eat one, dismissing them at first glance as a non-chocolate item.
Not only did I judge a cookie by its cover, but I also felt slightly betrayed. I suppose were I to yell “don’t look at me like you have chocolate chips in there, when you know perfectly well you’re fruity!” I’s have gotten some wayward glances. But I KNOW other people have the same issue. The picture above proves it.
I came across this recipe on FoodieFiasco the other day and nearly fell over. 120 calories for the awesomeness that is lava cake?! SIGN ME UP!
Let’s just be clear from the get-go…because my jumping for joy chocolate dance may seem a little strange, especially to those who regularly indulge in sweets. For starters, I don’t eat sugary foods – Fresh fruit and maybe whatever is in my coconut creamer constitute the bulk of my regular intake. I never order dessert when I’m out, and I haven’t in years – if it isn’t in front of me, it’s much easier to behave.
I have the kind of willpower that would have the Gods (take your pick of the Pantheons) emerald with envy, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to cuddle up to all things warm and chocolatey sometimes! I also work my ass off when I’m in the gym, doing cardio, or attending my Martial Arts classes, so the idea that I’d be negating those efforts for short-term, short-lived deliciousness doesn’t balance out. “It smells better than it tastes!” I remind myself.
My crazy habit – and total “cheat” – is snagging a Dr. Praeger’s chocolate chip muffin in the middle of the night. But the prospect of a lava cake for the same amount of calories? I’m not going to lie, it’s more than kind of tempting to whip up the ingredients and have it ready when I wake up…
Anyway, this is designed for one person – I rather like that idea since you don’t end up with more than one serving (that will – make no mistake – be heard calling even when the fridge door is shut. Amazing how those voices work!) A little bit annoying from an ingredient prep standpoint but whatever – once you get the hang of the recipe, maybe it will be easier! 🙂
I don’t really cook much, but I might be willing to give this one a go… Volcano cakes are probably the one dessert I actually WOULD break down and have…were my Olympian self-discipline to falter. Which (furrowing brow into a determined look) it won’t. (And thanks to this rockin’ recipe, I don’t have to chance it either!)
