Malten Lava Chocolate Soup


 

I stumbled across this recipe for a dessert called hot chocolate soup which sounds like a cross between the hot chocolate drink and a chocolate fondant pudding. And apparently if you leave this in the oven for long enough, it will become a fondant pudding. It’s an unusual dessert and I wanted to give it a go but unfortunately don’t have a couple of the ingredients (and I’m too lazy to nip out to the shop across the road) so I’ll try this out tomorrow.

Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try and create this little piece of molten chocolate magic!
