Rich Chocolaty Homemade Brownies

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a confirmed chocoholic. That’s right, an unashamed, unrepentant, CHOCOHOLIC!

Now I love brownies, but I love the fudgy, bendy, chocolaty ones. Oh yeah, you know the ones – you pick them up & they are so soft, and with just one bite you’re transported into chocolate heaven.

Yeah, THOSE BROWNIES! I have a secret to tell you, I hold the recipe to that chocolate deliciousness (shhhhh….)

Homemade Mint Chocolate Oreo Truffles

by Texas Homesteader~ 

RancherMan & I have a Valentine’s Day tradition: we get together in the kitchen & make a special dinner for each other.

It’s a way for us to focus fully on each other & give a gift straight from the heart. For this special meal, money is no object. And the sky is the limit for our meal choices when we’re planning it.

Usually we decide together what the meal will be & we get in the kitchen together & make the planned culinary delight side-by-side.

But when we were planning what would be our Valentine’s meal this year I told RancherMan that he could choose the entrée – anything in the world he wanted.

All I cared for was the dessert. I wanted chocolate, and I wanted that chocolate to be TRUFFLES.

To show me his love, RancherMan made homemade Mint Chocolate Oreo Truffles for my Valentine's Day gift. They were delicious! Check out our recipe. #TexasHomesteader

Quick No-Cook Chocolate Glaze To Drizzle

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Last week I shared with you a very quick & easy single serve 60-second microwave brownie  recipe. I mentioned that sometimes to add a gooeyness that I crave I like to top the hot brownie with this pourable chocolate frosting.

It turns this quick & easy treat into something more like a molten chocolate cake.  

(Hey don’t judge, sometimes a girl just can’t get enough chocolate!) 

I promised to share the recipe with you and here it is, my friends. Get ready to be amazed!

It's so easy to make this quick no-cook drizzle chocolate & I always have these ingredients in my pantry - no more frosting in a plastic tub for me! #TexasHomesteader

60-Second Single-Serve Microwave Mug Brownie

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Although we don’t eat lots of sweets, I love chocolate & RancherMan has a sweet tooth.

But with only two of us in the house these days I know better than to whip up a chocolate cake or the like when we’re in the mood for something sweet (and CHOCOLATE!) So what’s a girl to do?

Here’s how the conversation went recently about an hour after supper: 

RancherMan – “It sure would be nice to have something sweet.” 

Me – “OK, how about I make a hot homemade brownie just for you?” 

Really, that’s all the preplanning it took! 

After mixing a few ingredients and 60-seconds in the microwave I presented him with a hot homemade brownie.

Yes I smeared a little flour on my cheek & came out of the kitchen looking like I had worked hard over his brownie treat…  LOL 

Here’s how I made it:

With a few simple ingredients & 60 seconds in the microwave I can have a delicious, hot, single-serve brownie. See my recipe! #TexasHomesteader
