Recipe for Chocolate Dumplings


    Chocolate Dumplings

    3/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup cocoa
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    Dash of salt
    2 cups warm water
    2 tablespoons butter

    1 cup flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons cocoa
    1 egg, beaten
    1/3 cup milk
    3 tablespoons melted margarine
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    In a large skillet over medium high heat, combine the sauce ingredients and mix together well. Heat until the sauce comes to a boil being sure to stir constantly. Remove from heat and set aside momentarily. In a large bowl, stir dumpling ingredients together to blend. Beat for 1 minute.

    Return the skillet to the stove top and cover. Heat over low heat until sauce gently boils. Then drop the dumplings by tablespoonfuls over sauce. Cover the skillet and gently simmer for about 20 minutes. Only check ONCE...just making sure sauce is not simmering too hard.

    Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
