Day 153 – Mini Flourless Chocolate Cakes

31 Dec

To get ready for ringing in the New Year, something a little lighter was in order…Or, so I thought at least.  Cause, as it turns out, these Mini Flourless Chocolate Cakes (recipe below from Gimme Some Oven) may not be as “light” as I predicted.  Oh well, that’s what New Years Day is for, right?

I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve!  And may 2014 be even tastier than 2013!!

The cupcakes are extremely thick and dense. Somewhere between and brownie and a cookie.  They have an extremely strong chocolate flavor.

Whipped-cream

The whipped cream is…well…it’s just whipped cream.  And it’s tastes like whipped cream. Cause it is…whipped…cream.

This is as good a flourless chocolate cake as I’ve had. Nothing complex. Very dark. Feel free to pile on the whipped cream – or ice cream…or both – cause you’ll need it to cut through the cake a little.
