Please, God, Let There Be Chocolate in Heaven

Chocolate is certainly one of my weaknesses.
But I have been able to curb my desire for chocolate to only on Saturdays and this is working for me.
I want to be sure my chocolate is well worth the experience.
I think the following recipe certainly fills the bill for me.  It can be mixed in a medium size bowl with a spoon, popped into the oven in less than five minutes preparation time and then just be patient and wait a short twenty minutes.

It would take longer for me to drive to town to get a candy bar. 

My Saturday Chocolate Fudge Volcano Cups

3/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

Stir all together.  Grease, spray or whatever you do to four custard cups and pour in the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees and bake for 20 minutes.  (If your cups are larger and you do 3 custard cups bake for 25 minutes.) Don't even bother with a toothpick just trust and take out.

The instructions say to take them out and let them sit for 10 -15 minutes but if you can do that you are better than I am.

I turn them out on a plate, put whipped cream on the plate next to it because the heat will melt the whipped cream but I still want it.

Fix myself a good cup of coffee to go with my fudge volcano and indulge.


  1. God made chocolate to begin with, so surely he will let us have it in heaven....and without the calories!

  2. Linda, I believe you're right! We also won't get a sick stomach from eating too much :-) Darla, this has inspired me to put a Frosted Chocolate Drop Cookie recipe from 1950 on my blog at rocknrecipes...come check it out!
