Chocolate-Peanut Butter Dream Brownies

May 21, 2013



Here's a story for ya'.  I set these lovely brownies up and photographed them.  They (pictures, not brownies) turned out lousy.  A dream they were not (again, pictures, not brownies).  After photographing, I ate said lousy picture brownie.  Downloaded the pictures, realized they were not-a-dream-brownies-photos and promptly ran to the kitchen to make sure there were some left.   There was. Whew.


So, the next day, I set up another brownie and did a re-shoot (fancy photographer lingo=took more pictures).  Ate another, better photographed brownie. Downloaded and was happy (and a bit sad..no need to eat another) they were much better photos.  
OK, it's not very exciting story. But, what can you do? I'm a food blogging stay at home mom, not, a Kardashian.
 I am trying hard to resist going into the kitchen and eating another one.  They are indeed, a dream. Chocolate brownie, peanut butter-cream cheese filling, more chocolate, then, topped off with whipped cream and caramel!  Wow..try these.  Happiness will fill your life immediately.
