Hi Firefly,

Would you know why the chilling process is required?

This recipe sounds interesting. Plan to make it during school holiday.

It is required so that when the tray hits the oven, the outter sides starts to defrost and expand forming the outer layer. A portion of the mixture will stay liquid to form the "LAVA" inside the outer layer. If you don't chill it, the whole thing will become a cupcake without the moulten Lava inside. Please ensure that the oven is preheated to the cooking tempreture before putting the tray in. As noted in the recipie, over cooking will also produce a cupcake without the Lava.
