Indulgence begins with the finest ingredients, carefully selected to create a dessert that’s as beautiful as it is delicious.


  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 12 soft caramel candies
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional, for serving)


  1. Melt the butter and chocolate chips together in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the melted chocolate mixture to the sugar and egg mixture, stirring until smooth.
  4. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt, and fold them into the chocolate mixture until fully incorporated.
  5. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease and flour 6 ramekins or small oven-safe dishes.
  6. Fill each ramekin halfway with the chocolate batter. Place a caramel candy in the center of each ramekin, then cover with more batter until the ramekin is three-quarters full.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges are set but the centers are still soft.
  8. Remove from the oven and let the cakes cool for a minute before carefully running a knife around the edges and inverting them onto serving plates.
  9. Serve immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired, and watch as the warm, molten caramel lava flows out, creating a dessert masterpiece!
