When I helped with a ladies' tea recently, I just had to make something chocolate! I found this recipe in my Chocolate Fantasies (you gotta love that name - LOL) cookbook. These are yummy!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
2 (1-oz) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating at low speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine flour and salt; add to creamed mixture, beating well. Add chocolate, beating until blended; stir in pecans.
Pour batter into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Cool (layer will fall while cooling).
Spread Peppermint Filling over layer, and chill (filling will be very thin).
Drizzle chocolate glaze over filling; chill thoroughly. Cut into 1-in. squares. Store in refrigerator.
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
Combine all ingredients, beating until smooth. Yield: about 1/2 cup.
2 (1-oz) squares semisweet chocolate, melted
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Combine ingredients; stir well. Yield: about 1/4 cup.
How do those sound? I do love the chocolate peppermint combo - always delicious!
