Carnival Cruise Warm Chocolate Melting Cake

It makes you wanna slap yo momma, it’s so good!

Two weeks ago, my girls and I sailed off into the Gulf of Mexico aboard Carnival Elation Cruise Ship. Girl’s Trip 2014 was long overdue, but I will discuss that in another post. Let’s get to the subject at hand. During dinner time, we discovered a little piece of heaven right on earth. That’s right! For dessert, we ordered the Chocolate Melting Cake. It was simply delicious! I mean amazing to the palette! I ordered this chocolately, ooey, gooey treat every night after dinner. If you have ever been on a Carnival Cruise, you know what I am talking about. From what I have read, it is very popular.

One of my girls told me I needed to learn to make this. I agreed and I said I would google it to see if anything remotely resembled this delectable treat. To my surprise, I found the recipe for this little piece of heaven. The recipe is as follows:


  • 8 ounces of semisweet chocolate
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
  • 7 eggs, divided use
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of flour

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Melt the chocolate and butter and cool for 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix four eggs with sugar. Whisk. Then add flour and whisk. Add the remaining three eggs and add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture. Pour this entire mixture into individual ramekins. Bake until just done, about 15-20 minutes (interior will be melting). Serve with vanilla ice cream. Serves 8.

The recipe is quite simple. Warning…….It’s truly addictive! To my girls, if you are reading this, let’s have a dinner party and make this ish! #forrealtho

This is a youtube video of someone making this awesome dessert.

Have you ever eaten something so good, you just had to go home and duplicate it? What was it? Do tell!!

Super Bowl Sunday Recipe Share

The 46th Super Bowl will take place this Sunday at 5:30 CT….It’s party time!! Whether you are a football fanatic or not, a party will be going down some where. Many of us will host, crash, or party solo; either way you must have those Super Bowl Vittles. I decided to share a recipe or two for those that may be looking for something quick, simple, and can definitely please a crowd.

Ladies if you are trying to impress your new boo and volunteered to host a party for him and his friends have no fear. Wives if you are super busy but your husband wants you to prepare snacks for the fellas have no fear. If the party you were invited to is BYOD again I say have no fear. Try one of these recipes and you will definitely be glad you did. Oh and men you are not exempt. These recipes are for you too!

Taco Soup

2 cans of Stewed Tomatoes                                 2pks. of Taco Seasoning Mix

2 cans if Kidney Beans                                          2 cans of Whole Kernel Corn

2 lbs. of ground beef (cooked)                             Crock Pot

Mix all ingredients into crock pot. Cook on high for an 1 hour. Keep on low or warm. Serve with tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, or jalapenos. This version has more of a soup consistency.

Taco Soup ( My Remix)   In my Phaedra voice “Everybody knows I like to remix recipes!”

2 cans of diced tomatoes (Ro-tel Tex- Mex)             2 pks. of Taco Seasoning Mix

2 cans of Chili Beans (with sauce)                              2 cans of Whole Kernel Corn (drain liquid)

2 lbs. of Ground Beef (cooked)                                    Crock Pot or Stove Top

1 jar of Salsa (optional)

Cook ground beef  with onion powder, garlic powder, chopped onions, and bell peppers. Drain Fat. Mix together all ingredients. If it’s too thick at 3/4 cup of water. Cook on high for 1 hour. If you choose to cook on stove, then cook for about 30 minutes. Keep on low or warm. Serve with tortillas chips, cheese, sour cream, or jalapenos. My version is a little thicker and has the consistency of a dip.

Ground turkey or pork can be substituted for the ground beef.

I found the recipe below in a magazine or newspaper, I can’t remember. I must say I have not tried it but I do plan to try it. I wanted to share it anyway. More than like I will find a way to remix it.

Ro-tel Squares

1 lb. mild pork sausage                     1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese

1/2 lb. ground beef                            1 (10 oz.) can Ro-tel tomatoes

2 (8-count) pkgs. crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 350. Brown sausage and meat together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drain and set aside. Melt cream cheese and tomatoes together (stove top or microwave) for a couple of minutes. Combine cheese mixture with meat. Spray a 9-by-11 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread one can of the rolls in the bottom of the dish. Add meat and cheese mixture. Spread the second cn of rolls on top of mixture. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes, or until rolls are browned.

If you decide to try one of these recipes please come back and share your experience. If you have a recipe you would like to share for the Super Bowl Festivities, please contact me via email and I will be sure to post.  Have a wonderful and safe  Super Bowl Sunday!!
