Chocolate Chip Lava Cake

By  | Last Updated:  

Ice cream with Chocolate Chip Cookie Molten Lava Cake makes a luscious dessert.

Gotta admit, it’s always perfect weather for eating ice cream at our house!  Hot and sultry? Eat ice cream. Lingering on the back deck in autumn’s cooler air? Eat ice cream. Having company? Serve ‘em ice cream. And sometimes, bake something delicious like this Chocolate Chip Cookie Molten Lava Cake and serve it with…wait for it…ice cream! Thanks for the sweet satisfaction Breyers and thanks for sponsoring this post, Mirum Shopper.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cake

Although lots of people are trying to hold on to the last warm days of summer, I’m good with lettin’ ‘er go. Where I live in Arizona, summer is hot, hot, hot!

By contrast, fall weather is a civilized range of mid 60s to mid 80s. Love it!

Some people are surprised to learn Arizona is more than a sultry desert. Parts of the state are transformed with colorful autumn foliage. It is gorgeous.

And although we never get snow where I live, sometimes there is snow in the mountain regions of the state. We love living here because there is such beautiful diversity to enjoy year-round and it doesn’t take an unreasonable amount of driving to take it all in.

Now that our boys are old enough, they enjoy going on road trips and family explorations. However—there’s no place like home!

We love inviting friends over and having company means sharing at least a special dessert. You’ll always find ice cream waiting in our freezer.

Breyers Homemade Vanilla

Breyers Homemade Vanilla is a staple because I know it will always go with whatever cake, pie, or cookie dessert I might come up with. But that’s not the only flavor that regularly finds its way to my home from Albertsons.

Breyers Gelato Cookie Dough

I also highly recommend a new favorite, Breyers Gelato Cookie Dough. Vanilla ice cream with swirls of fudge and chocolate chip cookie dough pieces…yum!

Whether you’re holding onto the last of summer or grabbing for fall, it’s the perfect time to make my Chocolate Chip Cookie Molten Lava Cake. The chocolate-coffee-molasses flavor is delightful.

Lava Ice Cream Cake

The rich outer cookie-like layer with the ooey, gooey center is a taste you must experience. And top it with ice cream. Of course.
