Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a great day regardless if you have a special someone or not. When I was single we usually made cookies or bought a heart shaped pizza with our friends. And now being married, my husband and I don’t really go all out. I think because we love being together all the time and my birthday is just a few days before anyway that we just keep it simple.
3 cups + 2 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups chocolate chunks or chips + 1/2 cup chips or mini chips for topping
4. Pour liquid mixture over dry ingredients and stir until just combined (if there are a few lumps, don’t worry about it). Add 1-1/2 cups chocolate chunks and stir gently to combine.
