A Day For Chocolate, Like NOW!

Today has already been so hectic and nothing calms a woman more like chocolate.  Except when your trying to change the way your eating and you forgot to get your Healthy Choice fudge swirl frozen yogurt at the store, then chocolate becomes a necessity!

BUT, I have been good and will use my chocolate craving to give ya’ll the most decadent chocolate recipe that I have.  No really its called Kahlua Chocolate Decadence and it is to die for. A mix between a brownie and a cake and anything with a little liquor in it makes all your troubles go away.

Kahlua Chocolate Decadence

1/2 cup butter
8 ounces (8 squares) semi-sweet baking chocolate, divided

3 extra large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 & 1/4 cups finely ground pecans or walnuts (these can be omitted)
2Tblsp all purpose flour
5 Tblsp Kahlua, divided
1 tap vanilla
Sifted powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a small saucepan over medium heat or a microwave safe bowl on High, melt butter and 6 ounces of chocolate, stirring until blended.

Remove from heat; beat eggs and granulated sugar on high speed of electric mixture about 3 minutes or until light and lemon colored.

Stir together nuts and flour; gradually beat into egg mixture.  Stir 3 Tblsp of Kahlua and the vanilla into cooled chocolate mixture; gradually beat into egg mixture until well combined.

I’m learning this blogging thing so let me know how I’m doing.  I’m new to Pint rest too and so I want to let y’all know about some recipes I’ve tried and gave my thumbs up on.  Last night, I made Spicy Honey Chicken and Crispy Quinoa Bake.  They were so awesome definite keepers in my recipe book. So if your at a loss for supper this is a great combo with a little Mexican flair.

Have a great weekend and I’ll get you drooling again soon.
