Now I'm the first person to say 'ditch the packet mix' and this isn't usually something that I would have in my cupboard, but my friend and college Nancy from the USA and loves to bake recommended I make these as she was suprised with the results... and you know I just had to know.
The results are pretty good actually. A bit cake-y, a bit biscuit-y, a bit brownie-ish actually but over all really really easy and really, really chocolatey. So if you're a chocolate lover these could be your ticket. They freeze well too - so you could, if you like, take them out, put them in the microwave for 20 or so seconds and serve them with icecream.. oh was I bad for suggesting that?
You could use any cake mix you like, I used a mud cake mix because I wanted the chocolately chocolate-ness. But you could get any chocolate cake mix. It's all about the consistency really.
1 packet cake mix
125g soft butter
1/4 cup plain flour (you may need less or more depending on the consistency/size of your cake mix)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c
In a bowl, mix all ingredients.
The consistency should be like clay, it should stick together but also have a bit of firm-ness to it. Add flour as you need to. If you add too much flour, add a little milk until you get the right mix.
Place on a greased tray (or one sprayed with canola oil) and press down slightly.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, then leave to cool on tray for 10-15 minutes.
Cool (or serve with cold milk warm - YUM!)
Irresistible to a six year old !!! (and a forty year old!)
