Is it just me, or have the first few months of 2016 flown by ridiculously fast? I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that, yes, we are indeed living in 2016 right now, and here we are, halfway through March already. I haven’t even had time to post about all the delicious things I made in February 2015 yet!
Although, come to think of it, that shouldn’t have come as a surprise, since I’m usually, okay always, late for everything! Ah well, at least I compensate my lateness by bringing you delicious recipes, right? 😉
As it turns out, I only posted two recipes in February 2015. Buuut, they were both incredibly delicious and awesome and ridiculous. And I mean really delicious. Super duper chocolatey. And ridiculously scrumptious. Because gray February days, AND rainy March days, just need recipes like that.
So here goes!
1. Salted Dulce de Leche Brownies
Okay, here’s the deal: super chocolatey, fudgy brownies. Sticky, sweet dulce de leche. Flakes of sea salt. Do I need to say more? Um, yes, I think I do: YUM!
I made these again for my birthday a few weeks ago, and they were once again a hit, even though I kind of underbaked them because the power went out. You’ll need corn syrup (glucose) to make these brownies super fudgy, but if you happen to have Golden Syrup lying around in your pantry, feel free to use that instead. These brownies are insane!
Oh, and make two cans of dulce de leche while you’re at it. You can never have enough dulce de leche!
2. Messy Molten Chocolate Cake for Two
I made these for Valentine’s Day! The chocolate cake part is actually a chocolate lava cake – yes, with a gooey center! – but instead of unmolding it you just serve it in the ramekin. Easy peasy! You’ll need just six basic ingredients for the cake itself: unsalted butter, semisweet chocolate, powdered sugar, an egg, all-purpose flour and a pinch of salt. Basic pantry ingredients, right? Once the cake is baked, you top it with absolutely everything! Ice cream. Whipped cream. Caramel sauce. Hot fudge sauce. Fresh strawberries. Pink sprinkles. Whatever floats your boat!
Best thing? This is one of those dessert you could – and definitely should! – make just for yourself, because it just makes one small, individual cake. And it only take 20 minutes to throw together!
That’s it, guys! But to quote Arnold: I’ll be back!
