Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! I cannot believe that it is already the middle of February. We really have no plans and just plan on going out to dinner with the kids. We will probably go on a date night in a couple of weeks when the restaurants are less crowded. I have a last minute Valentine’s Day treat for you today. This one is so easy that it can be made in a matter of minutes in the microwave. Also it would be great for anytime you want a quick sweet treat.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I broke my camera lens when I was photographing this recipe. I usually don’t use my tripod, but decided to for this recipe. I set up my camera on the tripod and left it for a minute to go get something. When I wasn’t looking, the tripod tipped over and my lens smashed onto the floor. Luckily my camera body is okay, but I need to get a new lens.
These Microwave Red Velvet Lava Cakes were so good and they were so easy to make. This is the perfect dessert when you want a sweet treat but you don’t want to spend a lot of time making it. In each bite you get delicious red velvet cake, chocolate ganache, and whipped cream. This would be a great dessert to split for Valentine’s Day.
I made these cute red velvet cakes in jars, but you could make it in a mug or in another container. These jars would be perfect for two people to share. This was easily made using a boxed red velvet mix with chocolate ganache in the center and then was all microwaved for 90 seconds. This made about 6 small mason jars worth of lava cake. If you don’t want to make all the cake at once you could make all of the batter then refrigerate the leftover batter and ganache to make another time. I hope you enjoy this simple and decadent treat!
