Chocolate Enchiladas

Chocolate Enchiladas

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
2 large eggs
1/2 recipe Kahl?a Chocolate Pudding

Put all ingredients except pudding in a food processor fitted with the metal blade or in a blender and process for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the container and process for 10 seconds. Transfer the batter to a towel and let rest in the refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat a nonstick crepe pan or saut? pan over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the pan, tilting it so the batter coats the bottom in a thin film. Pour any excess batter back into the bowl, and cook the pancake for about 2 minutes, until the top looks set but not dry and you can lift up the pancake with a rubber spatula and your fingers.

Place the crepe cooked side up on a sheet of wax paper, and repeat with the remaining batter, for a total of 6 crepes. Stack the crepes between sheets of wax paper.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly butter a cookie sheet.

Place a crepe, cooked side up, on a work surface. Place 1/4 cup of the pudding about one-third of the way up from the bottom. Spread it into a rectangle across the crepe, leaving 1-inch borders. Fold the bottom of the crepe up over the pudding, then fold over the sides. Roll the enchilada up and place seam side down on the prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining crepes and pudding. Cover and refrigerate (up to 1 day in advance).

Bake enchiladas for 5 to 7 minutes, just until warmed through. Serve immediately.

Chocolate Cow Pies

Chocolate Cow Pies

10 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk the sugar, buttermilk, oil, egg, and vanilla together until smooth. In a medium bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, and baking soda together and add to the buttermilk mixture. Stir until the ingredients are just combined. Be careful not to overwork the batter. If there are lumps, they will disappear during the baking. The less you work the batter, the more tender the pies will be.

Fill 6 nonstick muffin top cups with the batter. Bake for 10 minutes in the center of the oven. To prevent the pies from getting soggy after baking, remove the cooked muffins from their cups and cool them on a rack. Serve warm.
