When it comes to Halloween decor, you either go big or go home—literally. And while it might sound strange to think about pumpkins and skeletons in the middle of summer, given how the pandemic has seemingly slowed time and there’s a general feeling of restlessness in the air, thinking about over-the-top Halloween decor is keeping us going at the moment—especially when that viral 12-foot skeleton is back.

Why would you ever want a regular human-sized skeleton instead of a towering 12-foot skeleton complete with a burning pumpkin head? Or tiny critters when you can drape a 16-foot wide web with house-sized spiders around your space?

mini chocolate lava cake recipe

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m sorry, this recipe is coming one day later than expected. I you have still time to whip some lava cakes up today. These lava cakes are rich and decadent, with cakey outsides and irresistibly gooey chocolate centers. They’re like a warm mug of hot chocolate in romantic dessert form.

These chocolate lava cakes look and taste impressive, but they’re pretty quick and easy to make. You don’t need any special equipment—no mixer, just a couple of bowls and a whisk. Unlike most lava cakes, you don’t even need ramekins to make this recipe. I scaled it down to fit perfectly in your muffin tin!

chocolate lava cake ingredients

Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten popularized the lava cake in the 1990s, so this recipe concept has been around for a while. I’m excited to report that the ingredients are simple (you probably have them already) and the muffin tin technique works like a charm.

This recipe yields two small lava cakes, perfect for two individual servings. They’re rich enough that you could also serve four people who are willing to share. I never manage to polish one off on my own.

You’ll find step-by-step photos and a detailed recipe below. Let’s make some lava cakes!

Buffalo Brussels sprouts appetizer recipe

Buffalo sauce on Brussels sprouts? Yes. Yes indeed, a very good idea. I only thought to try this combination after, oh, eight failed attempts at buffalo cauliflower. (I think I’ve just figured out the trick to that one, but trust me, you’ll definitely want to give these sprouts a try this weekend.)

These buffalo Brussels sprouts are a fantastic Super Bowl appetizer. They’re fresh and irresistibly spicy at the same time. You can have your fill of these and feel good about it later.

Buffalo Brussels sprouts ingredients

This recipe starts off with a base of golden, roasted Brussels sprouts drizzled with a simple, three-ingredient homemade buffalo sauce. Top them off with ripe avocado or blue cheese (your choice, both optional) and fresh herbs.

These sprouts will offer some balance to a full-blown snack spread. I hope you love them as much as I do!
