Even the rarest of belles can get a little hormonal once in a while…shocking, but true. Once the madness hits, there’s no stopping her determination to consume any chocolate (even sneaking into the kids’ Easter candy) within the confines of her maison belle. Well, my dears, time to step away from that Reese’s egg! It’s just not worth it!
We have a warm, sweet, chocolaty delight that is (somewhat) portion-controlled…and, sweet belles, it will not disappoint! This is an adaptation from our favorite brownie recipe…discovered essentially by accident while “testing” the brownies in progress. (And, as a bonus, we will share the full brownie recipe for those who want to take it to the next level)
Here’s what you’ll need:
– 2 squares semi-sweet chocolate
– 1/2 stick butter
– 1/2 c sugar
– 1/4 c flour
– 1 t vanilla extract
– pinch salt
Place the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted…just a minute or 2. Stir until smooth, then stir in remaining ingredients. Enjoy!!!
How easy was that??!! It is pure warm, sugary, chocolatey perfection!!
…and now for the full recipe…
1 stick butter
4 squares semi- or un-sweetened chocolate
2 c sugar
1 c flour
4 eggs, beaten
2 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
1/2 c chopped pecans (optional)
1 c chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter. Stir until smooth. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into 9×13 pan (spray pan with cooking spray first). Bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.
Now THAT’S a chocolate fix for you, belle!
