Chocolate Overdose

I admit to being a salty-savory person (in more ways than one), but I can appreciate the sweet things in life too. Last night, I did just that with a chocolate lava cake in a jar from local treat maker, Hot Cakes and nearly had a chocottack.

First spoonful created chocolate overflow to warn of rich goo inside

Wimped out and dumped remainder on ice cream

Quick Lesson on Hot Cakes: I was introduced to Hot Cakes Confections at the Voracious Tasting and Food Awards and fell in love as their sample spoon of EXTRA salty caramel sauce melted in my mouth. I would strongly recommend buying a bottle immediately if you are from Seattle.  If you are not from Seattle, make a friend IN Seattle and persuade them to buy it for you.
