How about a brownie? Mexican Hot Chocolate brownies to be precise - would you like the recipe?
Heat oven to 350, grease 8" pan
1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t cinnamon
Bake for 25 minutes or until brownies pull away from pan
1 cake of Mexican hot chocolate - see the picture above, Ibarra is my favorite brand.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 T cocoa
3 T butter, softened
1/2 t vanilla
1 t - 2 T milk
Cut the chocolate cake in pieces and put in a metal mixing bowl and place mixing bowl on top of a saucepan of boiling water - like a double boiler - stir until it's soft, it doesn't melt smooth, remove from hot water. Add powdered sugar and cocoa to melted chocolate, mix with an electric mixer on low to blend, add butter and mix well. Add vanilla and enough milk for spreading consistency. The frosting will be a bit gritty from the hot chocolate cake, spread on cooled brownies, cut into squares and enjoy. These are crumbly, plate and fork brownies.
