Chocolate Stuff is the signature recipe from the Sweet Potato Queens’ Big-Ass Cookbook and Financial Planner, and it is just the thing when you’ve got a bad case of the Mondays, if you catch my drift.
The key to this recipe is cooking it in a water bath so it comes out molten and gooey. If you just bake it, it comes out like a mediocre brownie and is hardly worth your time.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 stick butter
2 heaping tablespoons Hershey’s cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat together eggs, sugar and flour until smooth. Melt the butter with the cocoa in a separate dish or pan (I use a glass measuring cup in the microwave). Combine all ingredients and add vanilla. Add nuts if you want. Pour mixture into a loaf pan, then set the loaf pan in a larger pan of water and cook at 300 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
