If you or your Valentine...or your mom or your neighbor or your mail lady...is a fan of peanut butter and chocolate, put these cakes on your must-make list immediately.

Lava cakes seem like they're complicated to make. (Pssst...they're not.)


You'll make the cake batter as well as peanut butter centers.

The peanut butter center will melt as the cake bakes around it.

Once the cakes have cooled slightly, they're popped out of the ramekins and inverted onto a dessert place.

Heart-shaped ramekins are not required, but they're darn cute. I bought mine a few years ago at my grocery store (!!!)...I love my grocery store. Whatever shape they are, they need to hold 6 ounces.

Serve with chocolate sauce and a dusting of powdered sugar. If you're wearing your stretchy pants, top with ice cream.

I'm sharing the recipe over on The Pioneer Woman Food & Friends today! Yay!
