Chocolate-Peanut Butter Dream Brownies

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 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.
