2 cups root beer (we suggest Trader Joe's Old Fashioned root beer, or any root beer made with cane sugar)
1 cup dark unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 ounces dark chocolate melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup root beer
2/3 cup dark unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
I've got an alternate, heatwave-appropriate recipe:
1 chilled bottle of root beer, poured into chilled glass.
1 scoop chocolate ice cream, dunked into root beer.
Desert is served, y'all!
(Chocolate root beer= Delicious)
