Ingredients

1 bag (270 g) PC Mini Fudge Melts
1 pkg (500 g) PC Belgian Chocolate Square Baking Mix
1-1/2 cup (375 mL) vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/3 cup (75 mL) water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter an 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan and line with parchment paper. Grease paper.
  2. Set aside 1/3 cup (75 mL) of fudge melts. In large bowl, combine baking mix, eggs, oil and water. Using electric mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Scrape the side of the bowl and beat on medium speed for 4 minutes. Stir in remaining fudge melts. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth the top. Set aside chocolate discs from cake mix.

Pour chocolate into a small resealable plastic bag. Cut off a tiny corner and drizzle chocolate over squares. Top each square with three of reserved fudge melts.
