I titled this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, but really we made all sorts of shapes, which is most of the fun! (Another large part of the fun is eating them, obviously.)
There is a reason for this cake…and a reason it is this shape. Can you guess?
When I made these, Fall had just started. I wanted to make a new dessert since we had just finished the last one. As I was flipping through, I remembered liking the spice cupcakes I had made from this Food Network pamphlet, and decided to try a different recipe from it. I saw Chocolate Marshmallow cupcakes and was excited. Then, I changed some of the ingredients a bit, added graham crackers to turn them into proper s’mores and was very happy with the result. These turned out much better than my previous attempts at recipes like this.
Happy almost Halloween! I thought this would be a good recipe to share today for a few reasons. One, it is super kid-friendly. Kids can help you make them (although I did not have the Fudgelet help this time). Kids will also like eating them. Also, this is a super easy recipe to make. Perfect for a Halloween party to share with others. You could make these more Halloween-like by turning them into some cute creatures or using Halloween colors to dip them in. I’m sure you can be more creative! I will mention that I started getting a bit lazy and messy so some of them look more marbled than they need to…but I also feel like it doesn’t matter.
Is it okay for me to share another half-recipe with you? And an ice cream one when it is cool weather season? I hope so, because that is what you are getting today.
Seriously, this is one of the easiest recipes I have found for eating chocolate in a frozen stick form. And, it was actually full of chocolate flavor. Probably because it is mostly melted chocolate.
Obviously I can’t ruin the surprise before the break, so this is all you can see right now…
These are meant to be like the store-bought chocolate cakes with cream in the middle. Lots of brands make a version of it…and these were pretty fantastic. Soft, good chocolate flavor, but not too rich…and then a sweet frosting for the middle.
