|Spiced Rum & Chocolate Decadence!|
OK. OK...I've been a bad girl. Three desserts in a row?!?! What has happened?
After this, no more desserts for a while. Got it? I'm saying this more for myself than for you.
The back story...
My first real job was as a waitress at Steak n' Shake. I was really good at it. Waiting tables is hard work, but making money as a waitress is not hard. Compliment the women. Flirt with the men. Money in your pocket. At least, it worked for me! One of my favorite desserts to get on my break was the Fudge Brownie a la Mode. It was so good! Well, I was craving one tonight, and since it's Sunday Funday (i.e. treat night for me), I wanted to make a quick and easy Christmas-y version.
This rich decadent dessert is not only quick and easy, but absolutely indulgent!
Spiced Brownie a la Mode with Spiced Rum Chocolate Sauce
For the microwave brownie...
1 Tbs full fat coconut milk
4 Tbs raw cacao powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 Tbs raw honey
1 Tbs melted ghee (I use OMghee's brand)
In a microwaveable bowl mix all ingredients & microwave for anywhere from 1min 15sec to 1min 45sec, or until done. I recommend starting at the lowest amount and work up from there. You don't want a dry brownie. It should fall out of the bowl easily, though you may need to use a butter knife or rubber spatula to gently separate the sides.
For the chocolate sauce...
1 Tbs (heaping) ghee
1 Tbs (heaping) honey
4 liquid Tbs spiced rum
3 Tbs raw cacao powder
In a small pan or pot over medium-low heat melt ghee, honey & rum together. Cook until it starts to bubble. Allow to bubble until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and whisk in cacao powder. It will thicken as it cools (will harden in the fridge)
Place brownie on the plate, top with some vanilla coconut milk ice cream and drizzle with the sauce. The sauce may harden a bit when it hits the ice cream similar to how a "magic shell" sauce does. I love this! Crumble some crushed pecans over top and ENJOY!
