Casserole For Dessert?

This is called Chocolate Casserole and it's kind of like a bread pudding. It has a liquid chocolate center. ☺

Chocolate Casserole
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup boiling water
1/3 cup coarsely chopped peanuts
2 Tbsp crumbled chocolate-flavored graham crackers
Whipped Cream

Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, the 1/4 cup sugar, and baking powder. Add milk, oil, and vanilla. Using a wire whisk, stir until smooth. Stir in peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Pour batter into an ungreased 1-quart casserole. Set aside. In same mixing bowl stir together remaining sugar and cocoa. Gradually stir in boiling water. Pour mixture evenly over batter in casserole.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake portion comes out clean. Remove from oven and top with peanuts and graham crackers, if desired. Serve warm with whipped cream. Makes 6 servings.
This recipe is perfect for people who don't like their chocolate too sweet. Use milk chocolate chips and serve it a la mode if you want it sweeter. ☺
