Hey! I haven't blogged in a LONG time. Life gets busy once you get married, buy a house, have two pets, increase your commute from 10 min. a day to 90 min a day, and start taking running classes! (The sad part is that there are millions of people - mainly those with kids - that do WAY more than this everyday and still manage to survive. I need way to much personal time and sleep!
On to more interesting things... Pinterest Projects! Pinterest is the only website that makes me want to bake, binge eat, be crafty, and go on a diet all at the same time! Gee wiz!
I found this crazy brownie concoction and knew I HAD to make it for the girls at school last Friday. Here are some pics and the basic directions:
Preheat the oven to 350.
Get some break apart chocolate chip cookie dough and put 1-2 in the bottom of each muffin cup.
(If you put the dough - in the cup - in the oven for about a minute, it's easier to smoosh into the bottom of each cup.)
Next, put an Oreo, Reeses cup, Snickers, Almond Joy, etc. on top of the cookie dough. You can use any candy that you like. I think that the Oreos and Reeses are the best!
Finally, use boxed brownie mix (yes, mix it up like normal brownies) and put it on the top.
Bake for 18 - 20 minutes depending on your oven. They will look like normal brownies on the top.
Suggestions based on what I did:
-use a brownie mix without chocolate chips in it (too hard to make it spread out on top before baking)
- use foil liners (much easier to get out of the pan after baking)
- it's ok that they will deflate afterward (the candy on the inside is smooshy)
THEY ARE AMAZING! The perfect thing when you need a sugar fix, one is enough!! No need to sit around eating an entire bag of cookies!
