Now that I’ve been doing Weight Watchers for about 2 months, it’s still sometimes a shock when I plot out the points of a recipe, and come to find out just how “bad” it is for me. Nothing is ever off limits–You can indeed lose weight eating nothing but frozen microwave meals and 100-calorie snack packs with diet soda. I’m honestly not trying to food-shame anyone–When I first started this back up, I bought a LOT of the Smart Ones meals for a few weeks. I have a bad tendency to go off the rails on weekends, as well as when I’ve had a crazy/busy day at work, and I come home, and there are two people hounding me the minute we get in the house about what we’re going to have for dinner! Those nights used to result in ordering pizza. Now, they usually result in brinner, or chilaquiles (which I am actually somewhat shocked that the bambino likes!). Ingredients for both those dishes are things we nearly always have available in the pantry. Not unlike the necessary ingredients for these Molten Chocolate Cakes.
These are deliciously rich and decadent, even if they are rather high in points (13, based on this recipe). Oops! Still, chocolate cake is delicious, especially when the inside is a river of chocolate “lava.”
Add some whipped topping, and they’re perfect!
They’re so simple and easy to make, you can have them in just about 30 minutes!
