Go ahead, say it out loud a few times.
Ramekin. Ramekin. Ramekin.
Don't you just love the way it feels there in your mouth? It's pretty much my new favorite word. Would you like to know why? Because ramekins bring me happiness.
It all started at the end of last year when a friend shared this link to a much desired recipe for warm, molten chocolate lava cakes. The ingredients were all basic and at hand. The problem? Ramekins.
Who has ramekins? I thought to myself. Not I, I responded. (Because having conversations with yourself is awesome.)
I bookmarked the recipe and eventually forgot about it until about a month ago when I was perusing a neighborhood yard sale and found... say it with me, friends: ramekins!
I walked away with a little white basket filled with fourteen ramekins for a mere three dollars.
When my oldest boy's seventeenth birthday hit I knew that I had the perfect occasion for making these little ramekins-full of chocolatey goodness. I sort of looked over the ingredients, purchased a couple of needed items, and set to work creating these little cakes from heaven.
The end result? Success.
In a ramekin.
If you'd like to see the recipe-making process and experience a bit of heaven in your kitchen you can read about it over on my blog. I'd love the company.
