Valentine’s Treats

Valentine’s Day is Saturday and the way to your honey’s heart is CHOCOLATE!!

Tomorrow is my daughter and son-in-law’s 5th anniversary. Happy Anniversary Nate and Jenele! 5 years ago we were up to our ears in red, including red ice sculptures made in large heart molds to line the path as the guests entered the hall. (I thought I would never get the red food coloring off my hands in time to be a cleaned-up mother of the bride!) It was a beautiful, wonderful wedding and I can’t believe it’s been 5 years!

This is a blog: which means, I share with you and you talk to me. Out of over 150 hits this week, only 6 brave souls left a comment. C’mon, talk to me – about ANYTHING! I love hearing from you.

Go out tomorrow and get the ingredients for both of these very easy valentine’s treats. Your sweetie will thank you!

Hot Fudge Cake

1 c. flour

3/4 c. sugar

2 TBL. baking cocoa

2 teas. baking powder

1/4 teas. salt

1/2 c. milk

2 TBLS. veg. oil

1 teas. vanilla

1 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. baking cocoa

1-3/4 c. hot water

Pour the hot water over the top, and do NOT stir. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake tests done. The cake will be on the top, the sauce on the bottom. Serve a warm portion of the cake  with the chocolate sauce spooned over the top and add a dollop of icecream or whipped cream.
