Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies in Muffin Tray

We are starting yet another new week for BM#55 with me trying out my hands at an interesting theme - Make in a Muffin. somehow I always loved the idea of cooking in a muffin, not just a muffin but almost everything else. The idea was so pressing that I had to include it in this edition and I desperately wanted to try my hands at various ideas I came across. Making something in muffin ensures you have single serving and portion control. I enjoyed making pizzas and other savory dishes in this as well.

While I was quite prepared for the Healthy Breakfasts being done in Spice your Life!, this theme looked bleak. I was so caught up with cooking for Sep Mega BM as none were ready, I almost thought I might be skipping it. I started making it almost after dinner was done last night. I was inspired by this idea, though I ended up making it randomly based on my previous cookie recipes. As always when baking a cookie, I think to myself that I should give sometime for the cookie to settle down and harden. I am always in a haste. However my boys were so excited and declared it heavenly!

They had it for their breakfast this morning and couldn't have a better start in their thinking! Make in a Muffin brings in so much creativity and I am hoping I will do justification to the theme and cook the next two dishes on time this evening!

I hope you will enjoy this treat as much as my kids did!
