Even though I’m ‘dieting’, I can’t give up chocolate. Well, I could, if I had to. But that’s not a position I plan to put myself in Chocolate, in moderation, is known to help reduce anxiety and stress, and with how stressed I’m going to be these next three months, I’m going to need a constant dose of the sweet stuff. Along with having a desperate sweet tooth, I also am on the lookout for dessert recipes for the sweets table at our wedding. I’m going to be doing some of the baking so I will be busy taste testing recipes that are delicious, elegant, southern, bite-sized and visually appealing. Lucky for you, I will feature them all on here! This recipe only makes about 24, so if you are cooking for a large party you will want to double it. I ran out of chocolate, otherwise I would have dipped them for an extra fudgey bite. A dash of powdered sugar is just as nice, though!
What You’ll Need
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
