I've been sick and today is the first day I have felt better, so I decided to make some good old-fashioned brownies tonight. I went into my pantry and pulled out a box mix from Ghirardelli -the delectable double chocolate kind - and decided I would have a look at their website to see if I could fancy them up a little.
My sister calls it my "polka dot" gene. I can never just make something in its regular - - run of the mill -- boring fashion...I always have to add something to "polka dot it up".... I can't stop myself...I have no control over my desire to make something better...or worse in my case. I should learn to control that...after this last batch of brownies I will work on it. Or not.
Considering that I also have a really short attention span...I clicked around and out of Ghirardelli's website and somehow I ended up somewhere else with suggestions for brownie recipes that made me smile. The two that stick in my mind were, "Brownie Surprise!"...I bet! And the other was "Brownie Balls!" ...oh boy!
I asked my husband whether he would prefer "Brownie Surprise" or "Brownie Balls" for dessert tonight. He told me he wanted nothing that had the words -Brownie, Surprise, and Balls in the same sentence. I guess he's right. I don't think we will ever see either of those recipes winning first prize in the next bake-off contest. Never say never...
Well, I'm off to make "Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Bars"...minus the brownie mix. I'll save that for another night when my husband has long forgotten about the two recipes I found tonight. One day I'll combine both recipes and present him with "Brownie Balls Surprise!" I can't wait!
