We threw an end-of-year celebration with Carnival Cruise Line and ended it with this single-serving chocolate cake—and a free cruise for every guest (yes, really).

Break out the streamers, conical hats, and confetti: We're bringing back the molten chocolate cake, and that's cause for celebration in and of itself.


When you serve it at your next dinner party, you'll see smiles so wide they'll knock your socks off (and not just for the nostalgic factor). We know, because that's pretty much what happened with the Melting Chocolate Cake at our recent Carnival dinner (check out the video above!). Yes, these cakes take the (single-serving) cake. And, yes, you should make them immediately.
