Nutella Molten Chocolate Cake

Tessa Pasquill


If you like chocolate cake with a gooey chocolate center then this is for you! I found this recipe and made a few adjustments, but thought I'd share this extremely more-ish recipe with everyone. This will definitely satisfy any sweet tooth!

Chocolate lovers... you are in for a treat. This chocolate molten cake is paradise. Serve hot and enjoy the ooey, gooey melted hazelnut center. This dessert will have you scraping the bottom of the ramekin and cherishing every last bite. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you'd like. This easy dessert is rich and delicious.

Tip: Don't bake past the 35 minute mark even if the cakes aren't cracked. You want a gooey center so a little undercooked is better than it being cooked until it's a solid cake. The Test Kitchen
