Chocolate Sludge

Mike's mother will be happy to know that I found this recipe in the Stuffed Cougar Cooked Book. This book has been in the family for a while. It's one of those great cookbooks that still includes several blessings in the beginning of the book to say at the beginning of a meal. We use it all the time for the Pancake recipe and every once in a while I look through it for something new to make. As the recipe states this is not gourmet, but children and hungry husbands love it. This would make a good dessert for a Halloween party too. Especially if you're able to use Hershey's special Dark Cocoa.

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 t. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
3/4 cup pecans
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 hot water
Whipped Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream

Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, granulated sugar, and 1/4 cocoa. Add mik, vanilla and butter and mix well. Fold in pecans. Pour into buttered 8" square pan Mix 1/4 cup cocoa with brown sugar. Sprinkle over top. Pour hot water over this. DON'T MIX. Bake 40-45 minutes at 350. Serve warm. Serves 6-8.
