Individual Warm Chocolate Truffle Cakes

If you like this recipe, please share!

These individual warm chocolate truffle cakes are rich and delicious but not too heavy to indulge in after a meal. That makes them ideal for dessert after a holiday meal.

Individual warm chocolate truffle cakes are perfect for any occasion.

I love individual desserts for a few reasons. First, it’s always fun to get your very own dessert. Second, it’s portion control and third, there are no tempting leftovers.

These individual warm chocolate truffle cakes are really a chocolate lover’s dream come true and if you like truffles, you will definitely enjoy this dessert. It’s a fairly dense cake but moist with a melt in your mouth texture.

This dessert is not only for major holidays, but it’s also perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or a small birthday celebration. I just lightly dusted them with confectioners’ sugar but you could top them with fresh berries and whipped cream as well.

Other recipes on the blog with individual servings include this delicious apple crisp, these chicken pot pies, swiss and asparagus tarts, and individual skillet chocolate chip cookies.
