Peppermint Lava Cakes (Air Fryer)

Contributed By: Parker


2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 large egg yolks, room temperature
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons finely crushed peppermint candies, optional


1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter for 30 seconds; stir until smooth. Whisk in confectioners' sugar, eggs, egg yolks and extract until blended. Fold in flour.
2. Generously grease and flour four 4-oz. ramekins; pour batter into ramekins. Do not overfill. Place ramekins on tray in air-fryer basket; cook until a thermometer reads 160° and edges of cakes are set, 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overcook.
3. Remove from basket; let stand 5 minutes. Carefully run a knife around sides of ramekins several times to loosen cake; invert onto dessert plates. Sprinkle with crushed candies. Serve immediately.

Helpful Hints:

It never ceases to amaze to see warm chocolate pudding ooze out of the center of this tender chocolate cake. These cakes are a showstopper on a plate! Serve lava cakes with whipped cream or ice cream.
