Na na na na na na today is my birthday… na na na na na na gonna have a good time! Yay! Happy birthday to me! I love my birthday. It’s so fun. I love the desserts! Not a big cake fan, but this brownie fudge treat will do the trick for my birthday. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
1 2/3 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water (I probably used 1/2 cup)
3 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I left these out)
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped (I used 3 tbsp cocoa and 1 tbsp oil in place of this)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1. In large bowl combine flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; mix well. In small bowl, combine egg with 1/4 cup water, peanut butter, 2 tbsp melted butter, and vanilla; mix well.
2. Stir peanut butter mixture into flour mixture until combined. Add chocolate chips and pecans. Spray a 3 quart slow cooker with nonstick baking spray containing flour. Add batter to slow cooker.
3. In small saucepan, combine ice cream topping, brown sugar, 3/4 cup water, and baking chocolate; cook and stir over medium heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and pour over batter.
4. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Turn off slow cooker, place lid ajar, and let stand for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
Chocolate lovers rejoice! If you love chocolate like I do, you’ll love this cake. Some people say to me “oh this or that is too rich for me.” You won’t ever hear me say that. I have a very high tolerance for chocolate. I was surprised that I couldn’t really even tell that there was peanut butter in this dessert. There was just a slight hint of it. Ice cream is a must to serve with this. This is just as good as this caramel chocolate dessert I tried last week, maybe even better. 5 stars.
