Childhood Memories & A Little Bit Of Chocolate Heaven

There is one recipe my mom was especially famous for amongst my school friends… her Chocolate Squares which she made for every one of my birthday parties and every one of my school bake sales. They were flop proof, decadent and delicious and always a winner. And for a very long time, I forgot all about this delicious little bit of chocolate heaven… that is until we attended one of Ava’s school friends birthday parties and there they were… chocolate squares and they still had the same effect on me, I couldn’t stop eating them!

So I asked my mom for her famous recipe and Ava and I made them last week. They are still an absolute winner! They still require that everyone involved in their preparation MUST lick out the bowl…. adults and children alike!

  4. 1egg
  5. 2 level Tablespoons cocoa

    Ooooh, I have this exact recipe and I LOVE it. Haven’t made it in years. My Mom doesn’t like egg, so I’ve even made it without the egg and it came out fine.
