Molten Munchies

Stranded in a sea of lava - Wave hello to my mother-in-law. "Hello, Barb!"

Lava Cookies
Chocolate Lava Cookies
-adapted from Bakingsheet

2 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
3/4 c + 2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 c sour cream
2 c dark brown sugar
1/2 c milk
2 tsp vanilla
5 candy bars, chopped (your favorite kind)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
1. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside
2. Cream together butter, sugar, cocoa, sour cream, milk, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
3. Add flour mixture slowly into the mix.
4. With a large spoon, gather a small ball of the cookie dough and press in a few of the chopped candy bar pieces. I used whatever was on sale at the grocery store (s'mores candy bar, take 5, etc) Set on cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool and devour the lava with caution. They're addictive.

Monkey Note: I placed tin foil on my cookie pan and drizzled cinnamon syrup to create the red steaming lava effect. It was hard to taste the cinnamon, and didn't quite leave a mark on the individual cookies. So I omitted the step. Feel free to dazzle friends with your cunning cinnamon lava effects if you really want to, though. Don't let me discourage true craftsmanship.

Wow! This looks like a science experiment. This would be a fun cooking project to do with kids.
