Yesterday I made brownies. I made them extra rich.
I accomplished this by adding a mixture of 24 crushed Chips Ahoy cookies and a stick of melted butter to the mix.
Sometimes I just like to try things.
I smashed the cookies to smithereens in a zip lock bag and poured them into a bowl with the melted butter. I pressed this mixture into the bottom of my greased 9x13 pan.
I made boxed brownie mix, always adding a squeeze of Hershey's syrup to the mix. I poured this on top of the crushed cookie base.
The result was an extra rich, extra delish brownie bar. The cookies baked in and only a small trace of them remained.
While still warm, I served these to my munchkins. Naturally I jazzed them up with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream. They were delighted.
After the kitchen was quiet again, I served myself one as well.
And as I devoured my mid-afternoon snack, I realized it was an easy and elegant dessert for company. No fuss needed for this one.
Happy Hump Day! (giggle giggle)
