Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies
Recipe Type: Cookies
Author: CenterCutCook.com
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 10 – 12 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge, room temp
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. With your mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar and mix until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. In a large bowl sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix well.
  5. Fold in milk chocolate chips.
  6. Flatten a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough to fit in each muffin cup. I used a 1 tablespoon cookie dough scoop to help with the process. You will start by making 10 cookies.
  7. Use your finger to make a small indentation for the hot fudge. Place the (room temp.) hot fudge in a ziplock bag, snip the corner, and pipe about a tablespoon of hot fudge in the center of each cookie.
  8. To make the top portion of the cookie, repeat the process as you did to create the bottom by measuring a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough and flattening it to fit in the muffin cup.
  9. Place the flattened cookie dough on top of the fudge, and carefully press the cookie dough layers together. If you’ve made all 10 cookies and you have leftover dough, you can make additional cookies. Start with 10 to be on the safe-side so that you know you have enough cookie dough.
  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Run a knife around each cookie after it comes out of the oven to ensure the sides aren’t sticking to the pan. Allow the cookie cups to cool completely before removing them from the pan.
  11. Right before serving, heat the cookies for 15-20 seconds in the microwave so that the centers will be all gooey and melted. Top with ice cream, and additional hot fudge if you wish

Serves: 2 loaves
I love the smell and taste of freshly baked bread. Being thick and moist, it tasted nothing like the grocery store rolls. Fortunately for all of us, potato breads are easy to make. For this recipe, you can use leftover mashed potatoes or mix up a cup’s worth of instant mashed potatoes. This easy potato bread recipe makes 2 loaves – one to eat now and one to freeze for later.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter, soft
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-1/4 tsp (1 pkg) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 5 cups bread flour, about
Instructions
  1. In large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, eggs, and butter.
  2. Stir in sugar, salt, yeast, and warm water.
  3. Mix in enough flour to make a dough that can be kneaded by hand.
  4. Turn dough out onto floured board and knead it until smooth and elastic.
  5. Put dough in a greased bowl. Flip dough over inside bowl so that the dough top is also lightly greased. Cover and let rise for 1 to 2 hours, until double in bulk.
  6. Punch down dough. Turn out onto lightly floured board and briefly knead out bubbles.
  7. Divide dough in half and shape into two loaves.
  8. Place loaves in two greased 8x4x2-inch bread pans. Cover and let rise a second time for 40 minutes or until doubled.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when the top is tapped on.
  10. Remove from loaf pans and let cool.
  11. To freeze, let loaves cool completely before bagging and freezing.

Notes
I put all the ingredients in my bread machine and selected the “dough” setting. 1-1/2 hours later I removed the dough from the machine, divided it into 2 loaf pans, covered and let it rise 40 minutes per instructions. Then I completed the process by baking the loaves in the oven 375 degrees F for 40 minutes. It turned out great! [br][br]This makes perfect french toast for the morning after 🙂
