Blogoversary Party! {Day Three} : Bouffee e bambini Guest Post!

Welcome to day 3 of my Blogoversary Celebration...
Are you having FUN ? I hope so, because I have 
lots more to come!

But right now! I'd like you meet Hanna, she is super sweet and has been a follower of JMTW pretty much right from the start... 

Oh and her blog, has so many to die for recipes it's hard to 
choose the one to whip up next! 

Hi There!!!
I am so excited to be taking part in Rochelle's blog anniversary! My name is Hanna from {bouffe e bambini}

I am a busy wife, mother of two, full time nurse, and blogger. My passions in life are my kids and my food; love them both more than words can say. 

Today I am going to share an AMAZING recipe for Magic in the Middle Cookies with you. Usually I stick to a low sugar diet but when I made these I had to BEG my husband to take them out of the house because I seriously could not be stopped. I nearly ate them all!!! 

I found the original recipe here and adapted from there but feel free to reference the original.
Original recipe {HERE}

Chocolate Dough
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar (plus extra for dredging)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk

The Filling
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  •  pinch Salt
  • 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4  cups whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (1/2 cup)

The Dough:
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets.
To make the dough: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  In another medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the sugars, butter, and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and the egg, beating to combine, then stir in the dry ingredients, blending well.
The Filling:
Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan. Combine cream, milk, and vanilla in a liquid measuring cup
Pour 1 cup cream mixture into sugar mixture, and whisk until cornstarch is dissolved. Add remaining cream mixture, and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly, and cook until thick, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and add chocolate. Whisk until chocolate melts, about 1 minute. Now let it cool. Then place it in the freezer until fairly cold and hard.

To Make the cookies take about 3 tablespoons of dough and place about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of fudge in the middle and form the discs up around it. If you use too much fudge it will all leak out when you bake them. Trust me I tried it both ways. Resist the urge to overfill. Once formed place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minuets. Dust with powdered sugar. and ENJOY OH YOU WILL ENJOY!!!!!! 

A big thank you to Rochelle for featuring me today. I love new friends. Come by and see me anytime!!!
