2 Of Our Chocolate Recipes, You Can’t Resist
Chocolate is addictive, but who would want it any other way. Here are two of our favorite chocolate recipes you just have to try.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
My family loves banana bread, but with the addition of a little chocolate, it goes from love to absolute lust. If you have a few overripe bananas around the house, it is time to make some chocolate goodness.
You will need the following ingredients:
1 stick of butter or margarine.
1 cup of brown or white sugar. (We prefer brown sugar.)
3 ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups of white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1 cup of chocolate chips
You will need to mash the bananas until smooth. Melt your butter in the microwave then stir it into your bananas. Beat your egg then mix it in. Add your vanilla, salt, baking soda, and sugar. Make sure you mix thoroughly with a fork or electric mixer. Now it is time to mix in the flour. Once the flour is completely folded in, add your chocolate chips and mix until there are evenly mixed into the batter.
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease your bread pan with a little margarine, and then you can put the batter into the pan. You will need to bake the banana bread for about 45 minutes to one hour. You can check to make sure it is done with a toothpick. Let it cool for about 1 hour, then remove from the pan, slice, and enjoy the chocolate flavor.
Our second choice is pure chocolate heaven.
Easy Chocolate Fudge – Our Chocolate Recipe for Special Occasions
This recipe is super easy and can even be made by older children, with supervision.
Here is what you will need:
2 Cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1cup of Dark Chocolate Chips
1/4 Cup of Butter or Margarine
1 – 14 ounce can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1cup of Chopped Walnuts
This is where things get simple. All you need to do is put all of the ingredients, except the nuts, in a large microwave bowl. Start the microwave on high and wait until the chocolate chips melt. Remove the bowl, stir until all of the ingredients are well mixed. Then add your chopped walnuts to the bowl and stir until they are blended in. Grease an 8″ square pan with margarine or butter. Put the mixture in the pan. Refrigerate for one hour.
These two chocolate recipes will make your family happy. We regularly take these recipes to family gatherings, carry-in dinners at Church, and other events. We have never brought a crumb home.
You can also start your own home baking business with these recipes. To make the production faster you can use chocolate & cookie equipment. it will not only speed up the process but the baked goods will be consistent in terms of quality.
A quick not on the fudge recipe. We like our fudge to taste a little richer than many people. The original recipe from Grandma used all semi-sweet chocolate chips, but we like it better with some dark chocolate. The nuts are optional if you happen to be allergic to nuts, or just don’t like them.
Give these two recipes a try. We are sure you will love them just as much as our family.
