Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes – An incredibly delicious chocolate cake oozing with warm chocolate fudge!

It’s cake. It’s chocolate. It’s hot. It’s gooey. I wish I made more!

Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes are so rich and decadent, you won’t want to stop eating them.

Our very sweet friend Steph from Steph’s Bite by Bite is getting married next weekend so we decided to throw her a Virtual Bridal Shower!

Steph is one of the nicest bloggers I have ever “met” and I am so super excited for her! I’ve been hearing about this wedding for months…it’s about time! 😉

Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes

While trying to decide what to make for Steph I played around with a couple of ideas, but I knew that I wanted it to be something sweet, smooth, and chocolaty.

These Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes made the cut, and thank goodness that they did – they are freakin’ delicious!

It’s cake. It’s chocolate. It’s hot. It’s gooey. I wish I made more. I am still shocked that they survived a photo session.

Congratulations Steph! I hope you and the Mister will enjoy these cakes as much as I we did!

  1. I love the idea of a virtual bridal shower! While I was reading the blog and the recipe…I can’t help but see the sweet treat being appropriate for the occasion. The ingredients have to be fantastic as they are before they can bring out something great when mixed together. You need to have the exact mixture otherwise one will overpower the other. Sounds like compromise, or give in take, right? Thanks for posting this sweet treat and for getting us to take part in this virtual event…Have a sweet as chocolate, hot and fudgy married life ahead! 😉

  2. How sweet of you to throw a virtual bridal shower! 🙂

    Luv the look and description of these decadent, ooey-gooey choco cakes. This will surely satisfy my chocolate cravings!
