I love Kahlua. I decided to create my own signature Kahlua cakes. I revamped a regular chocolate cake recipe and made it my own. I tweaked the ingredients and added a sauce and divided it up and made them into individual cakes.These are deep rich chocolate cakes with Kahlua. Top with ice cream and my Kahlua chocolate sauce. These are a Kahlua lovers dream. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A Kahlua and chocolate lovers dream recipe! Where to begin... the chocolate sauce alone is worth trying this recipe for. There are a few steps, but well worth it. The cake's warm, ooey, gooey chocolate with a slight hint of Kahlua. Ice cream and chocolate sauce on top send this over the top. It's a special dessert but simple enough for every day. It's delicious! The Test Kitchen

  3. Remove from heat. Pour into bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.
  4. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour muffin tin. Set aside.
  5. Melt 2 tbsp of butter with the 8 ounces of chocolate on medium heat in saucepan. Stir constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
