Okay, so not your perfect "I want to lose weight and start the new year on the right foot" kind of recipe, but thought I should share.
My older daughter, was surfing the net this morning and she came across a recipe she wanted to try. It is from the Holly Hobbie website. So we tried it and they are delicious and thought you all might want to try it too.
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease or line a cupcake pan.
2. Combine dry ingredients and stir. Add wet ingredients and blend until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Pour into cupcake pan about 2/3 full. Bake 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack before topping or serving.
Top with icing, chololate chips, peanut butter, or not at all!
