White Chocolate Lava Cakes

We had great success making molten chocolate lava cakes last year around Valentine's Day. This year we decided to change it up ever so slightly by making white chocolate lava cakes with a hint of lime for a little extra kick. Top with ice cream and fudge sauce for a decadent treat.


Things have been crazy busy around here, so I'll keep it short and sweet. And make sure you bake these long enough and use enough cooking spray so the cakes don't stick!
