Fallen Chocolate Caramel Cake for One or Two

Fallen Chocolate Cake 2-1

While I am super happy the Seahawks won the Super Bowl, I wasn’t too impressed with the game itself. It was a complete blowout. After the second quarter, I lost interest and wandered over to the food table where I remained until the end.  Oh well! Enough about the Super Bowl, let’s talk about Valentines Day. Can you believe it is next week? WHAT! Where did January go? 

Fallen Chocolate Cake 1-1

I am not the kind of girl who get’s manic over February 14th, but I do love chocolate, which is exactly why I made this recipe.  It is a chocolate lover’s dream. Fallen Chocolate Cake has a fudgy center that oozes caramel.  Deep and rich it is like velvet on your tongue. The batter is enough for one ramekin, perfect for sharing.  Or if you’re alone like me, perfect for one.

    Yummmm. I don’t get super sappy over Valentines day, it’s just a made up holiday meant to sell candy and jewelry (don’t confuse that to mean I dont expect presents from Josh, because I ALWAYS expect presents, ha). This cake looks perfect to eat on the hallmark holiday or prettttty much any day. because chocolate.
