This recipe turns your favorite nostalgic, batter-bowl-licking treat into a safe-to-consume, chocolatey and sweet dessert that's pure bliss with every spoonful.
Heat-treat your flour in one of two ways: 1. Microwave method. Add flour to a bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir a couple of times. Repeat two more times for a total of 90 seconds.
Oven method. Preheat oven to 300°F. Spread the flour out on a baking sheet and bake on the bottom rack for 5 minutes.
Melt the butter in the microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring in between until liquefied, or in a saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently.
To a medium mixing bowl, add the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
Add the heat-treated flour, cocoa powder, and salt and whisk. At this point, your batter will be crumbly.
Continue to whisk as you slowly add the milk (or coffee), assessing the consistency as you go. Continue to add milk to loosen it until you are satisfied with the texture.
Use a spatula to scrape the side of the bowl, ensuring all of the dry ingredients are fully integrated. Then, fold in your chocolate chips.
Serve cold or at room temperature with a spoon. Enjoy!
If you want to really bring out the most of your chocolate flavor, use cold coffee instead of milk!
