I was blessed with a major sweet tooth, mostly from my mother. It’s a love-hate relationship I have with sugar, mostly love!
As a woman, it hits me awfully hard during that special time of the month. Like, give me all the chocolate all the time! You deserve a reward, in the form of chocolate.
I’ve been combatting it with a homemade fudge pie since I was a teenager. I love this recipe because it uses things I always have on hand, it doesn’t make too much at a time & it’s pretty darn delicious!
I thought I’d update the usual pie version for a pound cake & I added more chocolate in the form of mini chocolate chips- yum!
To make your own, you’ll need to round up butter, sugar flour, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla, eggs & mini chocolate chips.
Melt 1 stick of butter & mix with sugar.
Add all remaining ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips & mix thoroughly until there are no lumps.
Stir in chocolate chips & pour into greased loaf pan.
**You can use any kind of chips you like, or a mixture like peanut butter & chocolate!
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
