Some people jump out of airplanes to get their adrenaline rushes.
Others run marathons.
Me? I get my adrenaline from crazy recipes like this one.
I tell you, it’s not for the faint of heart, but oh it is worth it.
It all started when I was trying to plan a Valentine’s Day dinner for my husband and me. He loves chocolate lava cakes, but due to a limited number of ramekins, fears of failure, and a desire for something a little more foolproof, I was hesitant.
So, I looked around on the internet, found three solid options, and presented them to him. Lo and behold, he chose this one.
I decided I was up for the challenge and took a shot-by-shot approach to this recipe.
Preparing to fold the chocolate into the egg yolks. Density comes into play here. SCIENCE!

. 7 eggs? Holy laying hens!!!!
Yes, Mom! Whipping the yolks and whites into puffy clouds of foam is such a sciency, nerdy thrill for the inner chemist :).
