While there’s nothing quite like a giant, gooey chocolate cake, there’s something to be said for a scaled-down, miniature version of said. We made these for Dan’s dad’s birthday a while back, and they were a hit. Here, chocolate mini cakes are filled with sweet caramel and drenched in chocolate ganache for a rich and delicious dessert.
