Air-Fryer Peppermint Lava Cakes

It never ceases to amaze to see warm chocolate pudding ooze out of the center of this tender chocolate cake. These cakes are a showstopper on a plate! Serve lava cakes with whipped cream or ice cream. —Carolyn Crotser, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons finely crushed peppermint candies, optional

Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter for 30 seconds; stir until smooth. Whisk in confectioners' sugar, eggs, egg yolks and extract until blended. Fold in flour.
  • Generously grease and flour four 4-oz. ramekins; pour batter into ramekins. Do not overfill. Place ramekins on tray in air-fryer basket; cook until a thermometer reads 160° and edges of cakes are set, 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook.
  • Remove from basket; let stand 5 minutes. Carefully run a knife around sides of ramekins several times to loosen cake; invert onto dessert plates. Sprinkle with crushed candies. Serve immediately.

Test Kitchen tip
  • In our testing, we have found cook times vary dramatically between brands of air fryers. As a result, we have given wider than normal ranges on suggested cook times. Begin checking at the first time listed and adjust as needed.
