Baked Fudge

Valentine’s Day is here and you know what that means… it means baking a lot of gooey, yummy, fattening desserts that scream, “I love you!” What better way to say “I love you” than with some fudge. This batch of chocolate-y goodness will have you falling in love all over again. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Baked Fudge
Serves 4

2 whole eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons (heaping) cocoa
2 tablespoons flour
½ cups butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Beat eggs until light in color. Beat in sugar until just combined. Add cocoa, flour, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix gently until well combined.

Pour batter into four large ramekins or one 8-inch square baking dish. Set ramekins or pan into a larger pan halfway full of water.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is firm but not set. Toothpick should come out…not clean, but mixture should not be overly runny. If you pull it out of the oven and have second thoughts, stick it back in for ten more minutes.
Serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
