Chocolate Cream Pie
Happy day after valentines day! Happy day after Chinese new year... and happy presidents day! So are you all off from work and sitting on some bar stools somewhere? Not me, I'm at work... so no rubbing it in if you have today off!
I'm not a big valentines celebrator but it's always fun to do something a little special. John however is more of a romantic and I think he gets a little bummed that I'm not all gun-ho about V-Day... I try my best though... I mean I gotta show the man I love him! John loves boston cream pies, but never eats them due to the badness level of them. Personally the vanilla creamy center skeeves me out... not really sure why but bleh!! So off I went to make him a fun lightened up version.
I used my chocolate cupcake recipe (minus the chocolate chips) as the cake part and just made it in an 8 inch square cake pan and increased the time by 7ish minutes. The creamy center comes from cooking light... and the topping is just melted chocolate YUM!!
Tada! Now John can't complain that I didn't get him anything for Valentines day :D
Did you make your valentine anything special? Go out somewhere? Or just mellowed in?
