ooey gooey goodness

This is not exactly the first food post you would expect from a dietitian, but like I said in the intro – some recipes will be good for you, and others, well, will be just plain gooey good!!This…
is one of the latter 🙂

and it’s made in this…

Yup… that’s right…

Upon chocolate…
upon chocolate.
Which, when simmered all together for a few hours…
turns into this

The best chocolate molten lava lusciousness that you will ever swath your taste buds in 🙂

Here’s the recipe (from a great friend, Melanie!  Thanks, Mel… I both praise and curse your name every time I indulge in this 😉

1 3/4 cups brown sugar, divided
1 cup flour
6 T cocoa, divided
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup milk
2 T butter, melted
1/2 t vanilla
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate for this… because I am a milk chocolate lover… oh and I just pour the whole bag in!)
1 3/4 cups boiling water
Combine 1 cup brown sugar, flour, 2 T cocoa, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add milk, butter and vanilla.  Spread into 3 quart slow cooker coated in cooking spray.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips.  In another bowl combine remaining brown sugar and cocoa; stir in boiling water. Pour over batter (DO NOT STIR).  Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2-3 hours. Check with toothpick, serve with ice cream.  Serves 8 (If you can stand to split it that many ways!).
