    Red Wine Chocolate Lava Cake is one of my favorite desserts for dinner parties. You can prepare the easy batter ahead of time, pour it all into ramekins and just place in the oven about 15 minutes before dessert time.

    I like to top mine with powdered sugar, homemade caramel sauce, fleur de sel, fresh fruit, whipped cream or even homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Salted chocolate desserts are just all the rage right now.

    One of the other things that makes these lava cakes so much different than the ones you’d get at the fancy restaurant, the spices! They aren’t too overpowering, but you will notice them.

    Clove, cinnamon and ginger smell fragrant coming out of the oven and are even more intoxicating when you take a big whiff from your spoon while eating. They are a welcome addition to a traditional dessert that plays so nicely with the red wine.

    The majority of the alcohol in the red wine will cook-off while baking, but if you are concerned at all, you can substitute water or reduce the wine in a small saucepan over boil to kill it off before baking.

    They also aren’t prepared traditionally using chocolate ganache. In fact, these are like the cheaters version of chocolate lava cakes. But you know what, they have a melty center, they are decadent and rich and so I don’t care if they aren’t real or not.

    Red Wine Chocolate Lava Cakes taste best served right out of the oven, but be careful because those ramekins are hot! Use tongs and gently place them on a serving plate. If you have leftovers, you can cover them with aluminum foil and bake to reheat for another delicious lava cake another night!
