Every year there is a fundraiser for a local battered women's shelter that is done as a contest. Basically, you make a dish involving chocolate, and submit it. Then, the public makes a $10 donation and they are allowed to come in and sample all of the chocolate dishes. It's a huge event, they'll rent out a banquet hall and the tables run around the walls of the entire room. It is heaven for chocoholics, and probably a good way to induce diabetes. I want to enter something this year, but I only really have 1 chocolate recipe, and while it's good, it's nothing special (cheesecake brownies).
Anyone have any they want to share?
I'll start it off with my cheesecake brownie recipe:
¾ Cup sugar
6 Tbsp stick margarine, softened
1 large egg white
1 large egg
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
9 inch square baking pan
1 (8oz.) tub cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
1 large egg white
Preheat Oven 350°
Beat ¾ c. sugar and margarine at medium speed, until light and fluffy.
Add egg, 1 egg white, and vanilla beat well.
Pour batter into a 9-inch square-baking pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside
Beat cream cheese and ¼ c. sugar at high speed until smooth.
Add 1 egg white, beat well.
Dollop cream cheese mixture on top of batter, and swirl together with the tip of a knife.
Bake for 27 minutes (I love how exact, but this is originally a recipe from a friend's mom and that's exactly how long it takes hers) or until done. Do not over cook.
Let cool completely on a wire rack
This recipe works fabulously if you substitute all full-fat ingrediants with their low-fat equivalent (including sugar for baking splenda-even though I know some people's anti-splenda stuff, there are still some people who prefer it).
