Warning : this recipe is not light. It is not "healthy".

But...

It will comfort you like a big hug, and probably continue hugging your hips long after it has been metabolized. But, alas, we all need a few of these recipes in our repertoire. For those dinners that you just want something warm, gooey, and chocolatey - here is the most heavenly chocolate dessert I have ever seen. It comes from the Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen.

I suggest you go for a nice long walk so that you can make this dessert and enjoy it guilt free with someone you love. To print this recipe, go here.

And, in true "pioneer woman" style, please do wear your best farm chick apron while making this dessert.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided
  • 1-¼ cup Sugar, Divided
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ⅓ cups Melted Butter
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1-½ cup Hot Tap Water

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.

Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.

Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking dish. I prefer my small oval Corning Ware glass dish.

In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining white sugar (it should be 1/2 cup), the brown sugar, and remaining 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.

Pour the hot tap water over all. DO NOT STIR!

Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center is set.

Let stand for a few minutes if you can hold yourself back. Serve with homemade ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.
