This morning I decided to heck with Martha, I was going to do a "Jiggleized" version that I was more likely to do more than once. Enter the lowly cake mix. Love the cake mix. It's pretty hard to mess up Betty Crocker, there is a reason she's Betty Crocker after all! I wasn't willing to spend the dough on high end chocolate today either so regular chocolate chips and broken graham crackers sufficed. This was yum...the frosting was awesome and I got to use my butane torch. There aren't many things in my cooking repertoire that require a flame thrower so if I can find one I usually try it out. It worked like a dream. Creme Brulee' watch out!
1 package graham crackers broken into pieces
Semi sweet chocolate chips
1 chocolate cake mix, whatever one your like best. I used German Chocolate
Line muffin tin with cupcake liners. Place graham cracker pieces in the bottom of each cup. Just smoosh them in. I didn't cover the whole bottom with graham.
Sprinkle chocolate chips (8-10 chips) over the graham crackers.
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Fill each cup 2/3 full.
Sprinkle tops with crushed graham crackers and a few more chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 min. Cool completely on wire rack.
8 egg whites
2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp vanilla extract.
In a heatproof mixing bowl combine egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar. Place bowl over a small saucepan filled with simmering water. Whisk egg white mixture non stop until egg whites are warm and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
In electric mixer add vanilla to egg whites. Starting at low, gradually increasing speed to high whip egg whites 7-10 min or until shiny, glossy, stiff peaks form. Use frosting immediately.
Toast tops with torch or in the oven for a few minutes. If you use the oven watch closely to avoid burning.
