This Chocolate Pudding Cake is a really fun and easy dessert to make on a weeknight. Tonight we were celebrating that tomorrow the kids have a random day off of school, and this was the perfect way. I made it right before we sat down to dinner and it was warm and gooey when it came time for dessert. The cold whipped cream on the warm chocolate cake is nothing short of heaven.
I know that they are not the prettiest desserts, but I guarantee that what they lack in beauty they make up for in taste.
