Ding Dong Cake

When the older members of the family get their choice, including my now teenage son, more often than not, they choose a Ding Dong Cake.  What the heck is a Ding Dong Cake?  Maybe remember a spongy chocolate coated, cream and caramel filled chocolate snack cake in a cellophane package that sat on corner store shelves and could likely survive the apocalypse? That was a Ding Dong. What I make may be inspired by that snack, but it is so much tastier!

A Treat for your Valentine: Chocolate Lava Cakes

As a trained pastry chef I have to admit I am almost embarrassed to be offering this recipe.  This once king of fine-dining desserts now gets snickers from chefs and foodies when it appears on a menu.  It is now so common place it is seen as showing little creativity or technique from the kitchen.  Despite the Lava Cake’s fall from fine dining grace, it is still hard to beat that first delicious bite of warm, oozing chocolate!
