Subject: Looking for Chocolatier magazine recipe
I am looking for a bake and take chocolate chip cake recipe from the
Chocolatier Magazines. I know it used mini chocolate chips and sour cream
and was in a 9x13 pan. It was a white cake with the chocolate chips. It
didn't have icing, but powdered sugar.
Sorry, no luck with this. I'll post for reader input.
Good afternoon, I hope this email finds you well!

Chocolate Swirl Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Chocolatier, May 2002
Chocolate Streusel Filling & Topping
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup pecans
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate morsels
1/4 cup cake flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
Sour Cream Coffee Cake
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
Confectioners' sugar for dusting
Make filling and topping: In food processor, pulse together sugar, pecans and cinnamon until nuts are coarsely chopped.
Transfer 3/4 cup of the mixture to a small bowl and stir in chocolate morsels (this is the filling). To remaining mixture
in food processor, add flour, cocoa powder and butter; pulse until mixture is crumbly (this is the topping).
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325 degrees (F). Butter bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
Dust pan with flour, tapping out excess.
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into medium bowl; whisk to combine, and set aside.
In bowl of electric mixer, using paddle attachment, beat butter at medium-high speed for 1 minute, until creamy.
Gradually add sugar and beat at high speed until well blended and light, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and yolk one at a time,
beating well after each addition and scraping down sides of bowl as necessary. Beat in vanilla extract. Reduce speed to
low and alternately add dry ingredients in 3 additions and sour cream in 2 additions, beginning and ending with dry mixture
and mixing just until combined.
Scrape half of batter into prepared pan and smooth top. Sprinkle with filling. Scrape remaining batter over filling and smooth top.
Sprinkle with topping and bake for 65 to 75 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean and cake pulls
away from edges of pan. Let cake cool in pan set on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove sides of pan and cool completely.
Dust cake lightly with confectioners' sugar before serving.
Makes 10 servings.

I am looking for the fudge recipe that called for peanut butter that was on the back of the Hershey can.
Several years ago, I was constantly getting requests for “the fudge recipe from the Hershey’s can”.
It was quite confusing because several people claimed different ingredients were in the can recipe.
Finally, I wrote to Hershey’s, and they sent me actual copies of the can labels used from 1936 to 1974.
Links to the three fudge recipes that have appeared on the can are here: Hershey's Fudge
As far as I can determine, there has never been a peanut butter fudge recipe on the Hershey’s cocoa can.
There may have been one on the back of a peanut butter jar, or there may have been such a recipe in a
magazine ad for Hershey’s cocoa or for some brand of peanut butter, but not on the can. Most people,
when they put a recipe on the Internet, do not say where the recipe came from, so there is little way
to search for such a recipe. I did check a “back of the box” recipes site, but they had no peanut butter
fudge recipe. I also searched the Internet, but I had no success finding a peanut butter fudge recipe
that said it was from a box or jar or can.
There is a common peanut butter fudge recipe using Hershey’s cocoa (But it’s not from the Hershey’s cocoa can.).
That recipe, with slight variations, is found on many sites across the Internet. See these sites:

Can you find the recipe for grits that Red Hot and Blue serve?
Sorry, no luck with the Red Hot & Blue recipe for “grilled cheese grits”.
There is a grilled cheese grits recipe here: Plattertalk
I’ll post this for reader input.
