I have so many pictures and recipes that I want/intend to share with you. Lately things at home have become very hectic. School is back in session, stuffed husband is on call all week, we had a random tropical storm blow through, and then just to make things real interesting, Chloe came down with a stomach virus. Poor lil puppy was throwing up every other hour for almost 24 hours. Stuffed husband and I stayed up with the poor little girl all night. (NOTE TO SELF: wait to have babies until you are sure you can live with only 2-3 hours of sleep a night) I may never be ready to have kids.
In other news, I want to show you something.
This sweetness is a chips o’hoy cookie baked into a brownie-like chocolate cupcake. There are no words to accurately describe it. You just have to take a big ole warm bite of chocolate gooey goodness to get what I’m talking about.
I don’t have the exact recipe but I’ll walk you through what happened when a good friend was willing to take care of dessert at our house one night. I am still thanking God for that dessert. HEAVEN I tell you! She started by melting a little butter and chocolate together in a bowl in the microwave. I used an out of focus image because this way you can not see how badly my microwave needs to be cleaned. WIN!
While the butter and chocolate melted in my “clean” microwave, she filled a muffin tray with cupcake liners and plopped one chips a’ hoy cookie at the bottom of each. mmm. Next she mixed several dry ingredients (flour, sugar, etc) with a few eggs.
Then she dumped in the chocolate/butter mixture, mixed it all together, and poured it over the cookies. I was drooling at this point.
Then she baked these for only a very short time. Just enough time to ensure that the middles were still batter. Oye, what a treat.
I apologize for the poor lighting. It keeps you from really appreciating the deliciousness of this sweet treat. MMMMMMM. Slurp. These treats were easy to make AND their presentation very clever.
When I get my hands on the recipe, I’ll be sure to share. Happy Monday!
Peace, Love, and Dreams of chocolate~
