2 Minute Chocolate Fudge 

I love chocolate fudge and have a made from scratch version in my cookbook, “Blaise the Baker Dessert First” as well as a “quicker” version that uses sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. This newest version though is quickly becoming my favorite one! I am highly recommending everyone to try this! It literally takes two minutes to stir it up. The longest – and hardest part – is having to wait for the fudge to chill in the refrigerator for an hour. Patience is a virtue! I am sharing this recipe – with step by step photographs – on my Facebook page which can be found by clicking here – http://facebook.com/blaisethebaker

2 Minute Chocolate Fudge

4 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter, cubed fine
1/4 cup chocolate milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Start by lining a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Spray the plastic wrap with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl sift together the confectioner’s sugar and unsweetened cocoa powder. Add in the prepared unsalted butter and the chocolate milk.

Microwave on high for 1 minute, 30 seconds.

Remove and whisk until smooth.

Add in the pure vanilla extract and salt.

Whisk again.

Pour into prepared loaf pan and wrap with sides of plastic wrap. Place into the refrigerator for one hour.

Remove and cut. Serve.

Enjoy!

Chew This – Chocolate Chip Cookie In A Mug

Happy “Chew This!” Sunday! (And Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads!) As many of you already know, I have a food column in “The Courier-Times” on the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s each month. It is a place where I can share my stories and recipes, and I love it! I am always trying to think of new and different recipes to share with everyone – and this one takes the cake! Or, well, cookie! Ha! 

I spent longer than a person might think in developing this recipe, but the reward was well worth all the time, trouble and sink loads of dishes. The recipe produces a single chocolate chip cookie in less than two minutes. Two. Minutes! It is dangerous – it is fun – it is addictive – it is delicious! 

This recipe was tested in your average microwave. Do not try and bake this in the oven – or a convection oven. If the cookie is still gooey after your 50 seconds, microwave 10 seconds longer. If too dry, microwave less. 50 seconds worked for me.

2-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Yesterday, I made an AMAZING chocolate cake…in a MUG…in the microwave! Yes – you read that right!

I am not sure I had ever had anything like this before. AND I admit that I was (at first) a little…against the fact of making a cake in the microwave. I figured – why make a cake in a MUG when you could make a regular size cake and eat on it for days!?

Well, I am “seeing the light” now, and I understand why people would want a “mug cake”. It is easy, fast, individual sized, and so delicious!

The recipe I used came from “Lucky Peach”. I have included the recipe below – but here is their official posting, recipe and story… http://lky.ph/post/43087441437/mug-cake-for-lonelyhearts

Lucky Peach’s Two-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons white all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 small or medium coffee mug (microwave safe)

Add the egg, milk and vegetable oil to a small or medium coffee mug and whisk together. Next, add the white all-purpose flour, white granulated sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder, and mix thoroughly until everything is combined. Finally, add in the chocolate chips, pure vanilla extract and salt and mix again.

Put your mug into a 1000-watt microwave for 2 minutes.

The cake might rise over the top of the mug, but do not be alarmed.

Allow to cool and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! This can serve two. 

Note: Mine served one – me. 

Enjoy!
