No Bake, 2 Ingredient Molten Choco Lava Cake

Standard

Being a big fan of Dominos Molten choco lava cake, whenever we go for Domino’s Pizza – choco lava cake is a must in the list. I resemble being a kid, when I get Choco Lava Cake. I never ever share my lava cake even with my kids, even if I am not able to eat that moment, will have it later, but never share with anyone – that selfish moment.

Recently I got to try this Choco Lava Cake but in a unique manner – no bake with just 2 ingredients and just 5 mins. It was yummy, I have used Marie Biscuits, but you can also use any brand choco chips biscuit for perfect texture. Let me share the recipe…

Taking it to Fiesta Friday #134 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Ingredients:

  • Marie Biscuits or any Choco chip biscuits – 10 nos
  • Hershey’s chocolate syrup or any chocolate syrup – 2 cups

Preparation:

  • Take the biscuits in a blender and blend them to a fine powder.
  • Transfer ¾ th portion of biscuit powder to a wide mouth bowl, pour the hershey’s syrup little by little and start mixing it with the biscuit powder.
  • Roll it to dough, use only hands (it would help to know the consistency).
  • Take a bowl and a butter paper, line the bowl with the butter paper, now add a small portion of the bowl and gently press them.
  • Make a well in the center of the dough, pour the hershey’s syrup and again top it with the rolled biscuit dough.
  • Gently give a press, now invert the bowl to a plate and gently remove the butter paper.
  • Sprinkle little biscuit powder over the molten lava cake.

Serve it with a cup of milk.

 

Crispy Corn Kernel Salad

Standard

Crispy Corn Kernel Salad is the most healthy snack for kids. Also this is kids-friendly, as most of the kids love to have corn as snack, here I have fried the corn kernels and combined with veggies.

This is my long wait dish, after I got to try it in Soho St. I am not going to say it’s the same, as usual when I love to see or try some dishes and then give out with a small twist may be based on a ingredients, cuisine or the presentation.

Whenever I get sweet corn, my kids never allow to try any dish, they love to have it steamed with butter and salt or with chat masala or with any spice masala or they just roast in the hob rubbed with salt and butter. But this time, it was totally different, my daughter wanted to take a healthy snack with corn as the core ingredient. But happy for me, as I thought of trying out this Crispy Corn, when as a healthy snack, I thought to present it as a salad with veggies.

Started my creation early in the morning with a little fear, as it would be my first try and she needs to take it to school. At the same time imagining, “what would happen when this becomes a flop?”, and proceeded with a loads of confidence. Finally the crispy corn kernel salad was a big hit in my home and her school. Let us move on to the recipe…
