That left turn is a good, nay a GREAT thing. If you’re a fan of chocolate lava cakes, I took them up a level by adding an Easter twist on it and popped Cadbury creme egg in the center and baked them. That’s a warm molten creme egg! In the middle of a chocolate cake! I know! I’m excited too! (I’ll stop the exclamations).

When I got to the store to buy the creme eggs, to my delight I see they now have caramel eggs in addition to the regular eggs. Where have I been? I clearly need to get out more. I bought both because chocolate and caramel are my 2 favorite dessert items.

This could be your new family Easter dessert. With its impressive presentation, people will think they were made by a pastry chef.
