End the Year on a Sweet Note


On Friday 45 percent of Americans will make New Year’s resolutions, with the top three being losing weight, staying fit and healthy, and not eating sweets. Well, only 8 percent of people will actually keep those resolutions. In the next five days when you are planning your New Year’s resolutions, feel free to binge out on some end of the year libations and, most importantly, desserts. This year I’ve decided to try and give up chocolate for at least a month. Being a self named “chocoholic” we will see how well this resolution goes. In the meantime, we talked with Chef Joseph McGarry from Teton Pines Country Club and got his recipe for his famous warm chocolate molten cake.  If you are hosting a New Year’s Eve party, these would be great to prep ahead and serve as the perfect sweet treat to say goodbye to 2015 and ring in 2016.

Teton Pines' Warm Chocolate Molten Cake


  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar, granulated
  • 5 tablespoons flour


  • Mix melted chocolate and butter together. In a separate bowl, mix whole eggs, yolks and sugar until smooth. Add to chocolate mixture very slowly. Finish by adding in the flour. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Prepare individual soufflé cups by first greasing, then flouring. Preheat oven to 350 F. Scoop soufflé mixture into cups. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla, butter pecan or coffee ice cream.
