Chocolate Monkey

This is a sinfully quick little snack I make myself whenever I've got a craving for chocolate. Be sure to take a look at the whole wheat variation below, and the FudgeMonkey version on its own page.

  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 3 heaping spoons Sugar
  • 1 heaping spoons Cocoa
  • 2-3 heaping spoons Flour

To prepare this recipe you need a microwaveable coffee cup, a regular spoon you eat with, and a butter knife.

Use the knife to cut 1 tablespoon from a stick of butter.

Put the butter in the coffee cup and put it in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Put 3 heaping spoonfuls of sugar into the coffee cup with the melted butter.

Stir the sugar/butter mixture with the knife and place the cup back into the microwave for another 20 seconds. If you like the taste of butter be sure to lick the knife clean at this point. (You did use a butter knife didn't you?)

Put 1 heaping spoonful of cocoa and 2 heaping spoonfuls of flour in the cup and stir with the knife.

This should give you a smooth mixture of chocolate goodness. I personally like a more powdery texture, so I add another spoonful of flour.

Lick the knife clean and use the spoon to eat your chocolate monkey!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Monkey

Use 2 heaping spoons of Whole Wheat Graham Flour, or regular Whole Wheat Flour instead of White Flour.

At present, this is my preferred variation. The graham flour is a little courser grind makes it more chewy and gives it a looser texture.
