Oooh...A Chocolate Faux Pas

Okay, I goofed. I did not post a chocolate recipe yesterday. So, here I am, after midnight, doing just that. And here it is Chocolate Month. I am so ashamed...I deserve 100 lashes with a chocolate bar. Really. Do you have a chocolate bar on you? Pelt me with M & Ms? That would be an appropriate punishment don't you think? And I will take it like a man...er, woman. Andi mentioned dipping the Rice Krispy Heart Treats in chocolate! You can do that! Just like you do with strawberries....yummy. I am thinking that you can dip just about anything in chocolate...the mind boggles... Now, how about brownies? Special dark brownies....decadent eh? So good....easy too!
Fudgey SPECIAL DARK Brownies Ingredients: 3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted and divided 1/2 cup boiling water 2 cups sugar 2 eggs 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
2. Stir together cocoa and baking soda in large bowl; stir in 1/3 cup butter. Add boiling water; stir until mixture thickens. Stir in sugar, eggs and remaining 1/3 cup butter; stir until smooth. Add flour, vanilla and salt; blend completely. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.
Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
Frost if desired.
Cut into squares.
About 36 brownies.

Oh Hon, no faux pas with me. I used to dearly love my Chocolate. But numerous tum-tum issues have made it a no-no for me. So, no chocolate bar lashes from me. ;-)

But all you who can, enjoy some Chocolate for me!
