A whole post dedicated to chocolate...everything made of chocolate or dipped in chocolate. Now I know that some may roll their eyes and say, of course she likes chocolate she is a typical woman. But let me tell you, there is nothing typical about my love for chocolate.
One the the best gifts I have ever received was a chocolate fondue FOUNTAIN! When I got this gift I cried. Yes, cried, tears of joy. Christmas parties, Bible studies, birthdays and dessert nights have never been the same.
That's right! Enough chocolate to feed a small army, or three couples (depending on the couples). Notice, I am dipping a marshmallow, Bradley is dipping a pretzel, you can see strawberries and cherries in the picture. Other dipping items include bananas, cheesecake (oh my goodness! so good), Bradley also dips chips (just weird but he likes the salty and sweet combo) really anything you want!
Now, the best chocolate cake ever created...
I mean EVER created is the Great Wall of Chocolate from P.F. Changs.
Aww... two of my favorite things! The delicious chocolate cake covered in raspberry sauce and my adorable hubby (please note his sunburn)! I wish I had a better picture, and I'm actually surprised that I don't have multiple pictures of this cake. ...but it is huge and so good! Best to be shared with 2-4 people.
One of my joys in life is to experience the Great Wall of Chocolate with someone who has never tried it before. So if you have never had this cake...call me! I'll go with you!
Now I love this cake so much, my dear friend had it recreated for my shower!
She knows me too well! *single tear*
Maybe now you are beginning to understand my love for chocolate. And if you are anything like me, then every now and then you just need to eat something that's chocolate! Well I've got the quick and easy recipe to fill the chocolate crave!
These are chewy, half-baked chocolate delights known as Sticky Chocolate Cake.
Sticky Chocolate Cake
-1/2 cup melted butter
-1 1/4 cup sugar
-2/3 cup flour
-4 tablespoons cocoa
-pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all ingredients together and place heaping spoon fulls into muffin pan. The mix is yummy too! So taste away!
Bake for 15 minutes. Makes 12 mini-cakes.
I actually used 1/2 the ingredients and it made 6. I really like that it doesn't make 36 cupcakes or a huge cake. Note: it is a little sticky, but it's good! So if you decide to make a cake instead, make sure you grease the pan and bake for 20 minutes.
One thing I liked about this was that I already had all the ingredients in my pantry, I didn't have to go out and buy new stuff to make something good. Bradley liked it too, but he said it was a little sticky...guess it was named sticky cake for a reason! :-)
