…an eruption of chocolate!
Another new job. Another long week of work. Another Friday night in. However, this time was different. In addition to the sweet and salty snack plate, bottle of chocolate wine, comfy sweatpants, and on-demand movie rental, I found it necessary to bake. Although, I knew if I made a batch of cookies, or a dozen cupcakes, they wouldn’t survive the first half of the movie. Yes, it was one of those kinds of nights.
Warm chocolate cake filled with thick, hot fudge sauce, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with vanilla bean gelato. Yes please!
