Cookies 'N Cream Red Lava Dream Cake

Rich and gooey mini lava cakes are a sweet dream come true for chocolate lovers.


  • 3 king-size cookies 'n' creme bars
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter + more for ramekins
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Red food coloring
  • Oreo cookies, chopped
  • Ice cream, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F, and prepare ramekins (custard cups) by coating with butter. Set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt cookies 'n' creme bars and set aside.
  3. In another bowl, melt butter and semisweet chocolate together. Add eggs and yolks, stirring to combine. Whisk in flour, sugar, salt and food dye until desired color is achieved.
  4. Scoop batter into ramekins, filling halfway. Make a little hole, and top with melted candy bar and chopped cookies. Top with remaining batter.
  5. Bake for 17 minutes, or until surfaces of the cakes are set and starting to crack but still jiggly.
  6. Remove from oven, run a knife around the edges and turn out onto a plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, a scoop of ice cream and/or more cookie crumbles if desired. Serve immediately.
