Chocolate Lava Cookies

Is it just me or are we always looking for snacks to have with our tea? I usually use my kids and new recipe experiments as an excuse to make so many desserts. These chocolate lava cookies were perfect with my tea last night and my kids were fighting over the last one. That’s when I knew that this recipe was THE ONE! I made 2 dozen of these, but reheating them was so easy and they still turned out soft and rich as when I freshly baked them.

Chocolate lava cookies

Preparation Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 20 minutes

Yields 6 jumbo cookies


Fudge Sauce

60 grams semi sweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 tablespoon butter


1/2 cup butter- softened

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1 egg- room temperature

1 cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Place the chocolate and condensed milk in a pan. Stir over a low heat until a shiny mixture comes together. Turn off the heat and pour the sauce into a bowl. Add the butter and mix it in. Set it aside to cool for 10 minutes.

  2. Once the fudge sauce is cooled slightly, divide it into 6 and roll each section into a ball. Place them on a plate and freeze them for 10 minutes.

  3. For the cookie dough: cream the butter and sugars together for 10 minutes until creamy.

  4. Add the egg and mix well. Add the dry ingredients and mix on a low speed until JUST combined. Do not over mix the cookie dough, otherwise you will have tough cookies.

  5. Chill the dough for 10 minutes.

  6. Divide the cookie dough into 6 sections. Roll each one into a ball. Place a fudge sauce ball into the middle of the dough and roll it up so the cookie dough is covering the sauce.

  7. Place the cookie dough 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.

  8. Bake the cookies at 165c for 12-13 minutes.

  9. Remove from the oven and let them sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

  10. Serve the cookies warm. Sift icing sugar over the tops of the cookies.
