Reviews for Chocolate Espresso Lava Cake
"Have made this several times. Delicious! I like 1 1/2 Tbsp. espresso and milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet."
"Delicious and oh so easy. My crock pot was bigger than called for, but no problems, I just checked it a bit earlier since it was thinner than it would have been in a 4-qt. crockpot. I used a box of sugar-free chocolate pudding because that was all I had on hand and that worked out just fine. I've been home recovering from surgery and this was a nice and easy treat to have waiting for my husband when he got home from work to say "thank you" for taking such good care of me these last few days."
