I just typed an ENTIRE post.
and then deleted it.
So It's gonna be one of THOSE days. I see how it is.
Good thing I'm posting this recipe. I may need to go have some for breakfast now.
Seriously, this stuff is da' bomb! (does anyone even say that anymore?)
I had one of those neverendingly hungry 'I-want-to eat-everything-chocolate-in-my-kitchen' days yesterday. But, of course, I'm trying to maybe watch my girlish figure, so I had to try so so so hard to resist. And then, I was weak and gave in. Boy, was it worth it.
After I ate 2 *large* helpings, I was so very happy, and remembered, hey, you only live once!
Here's to Girlish figures out the window!
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups boiling water
Reeses Pieces, Chocolate Chips, or Peanut Butter Chips for top (cause I always feel the need to overdo it in the sugar department)
Whipped cream or ice cream for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch square baking dish or round souffle dish. Combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 1/3 cup cocoa in medium bowl. Add milk, butter and vanilla, stir until just blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared dish.
Combine brown sugar and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa in small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over batter. Pour boiling water over entire mixture; do not stir.
Bake 35 to 38 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the top layer comes out clean.
If you want, you can immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips, reeses pieces, or peanut butter chips so they get all melty and wonderful( I highly recommend this). Or, you can leave it plain with either whipped cream or ice cream....but I highly recommend chips on top. You can never EVER have too much chocolate or peanut buttery-ness in anything! No matter how you serve it up, it will melt your heart and change your life <3
