OOooooohhhhh lava cake, my sweet, sweet love!

This is a public service announcement for anyone in desperate need of a chocolate/sugar fix that isn't too horrific on a self-inflicted, calorie reduced diet:

BUY DR. OETKER CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY LAVA CAKES. BUY THEM NOW. I MEAN IT. GET YOUR SOON-TO-BE SKINNY-OR-DIE-TRYING ASS OFF THE COUCH AND GET A BOX OF LAVA CAKE MIX. I'M NOT KIDDING. WHY ARE YOU STILL READING??? GO! GO! GO!

Oooooh, It's some serious chocolatey goodness. When paired with Chapman's Cappuccino Frozen Yogurt, you have yourself a pretty delectable, not to mention immensely satisfying, little Saturday splurge.

Word to the wise though, don't overbake the lava cakes. When you do they lose their lava and, well, then you're pretty much just left with regular old cupcakes.

Damn fine cupcakes, mind you, but I can only imagine how spectacular they would have been oozing molten chocolate-raspberry perfection.

Weight Watchers is going well. I've lost 8.5 pounds (tomorrow is weigh-in, so we'll see if I can add to the tally...or not) and I'm still surprisingly motivated - but my GOD, what I wouldn't do for one, good, old-fashioned, pre-Weight Watchers pig-out. And I don't mean a "satisfy your craving" kind of nosh - I mean a salty, buttery, fatty, 7000-calorie-secret-sauce-dripping-from-your-chin kind of pig-out.

Those were the good old days.

And now back to my celery.

(As for you, seriously - why are you still here?? Get out and get your Lava Cakes!!)

Mmmmm, lava cake. My mouth is watering already, so I'm hoping this isn't just a Canadian thing. Enjoy your yummy treats! :)
