Chocolate Goo Cake

These cakes are just as gooey, messy and decadently wonderful as the look. This one has marshmallows melted inside of it, but if you’re not a marshmallow fan you can skip this step. I recommend making them in self-serving ramekins or cupcake tins otherwise the mess is dificult to contain! Serving these warm alongside a dollop of  ice cream is the perfect most decadent of contrasts!
