Karen Basso


Let me just say, after I had been served a Chocolate Lava Crunch cake, I really needed to learn how to make them at home because they are literally the best thing since...anything and everything! I did some searching on TastyKitchen and found this amazing recipe which had 40+ thumbs up I knew I had to try it.
Let's get started.
