Hi there! There are many things in the world that make me smile. But do you know what makes me just ecstatic; what makes me grin from ear to ear? A girl who loves her chocolate. As a chocolate devotee, I relish in finding fellow chocolate lovers. I admire one who spits upon the inferior flavors and who appreciates the true heavenly goodness of chocolate. Where am I going with this? Well, yesterday I had the pleasure of baking for someone like this. Today is my best friend’s sister’s 22nd birthday, so I decided to make her something delicious! When I asked my friend what flavor she liked and she replied, “Chocolate. Anything Chocolate.” I knew I was going to have some fun. So, I turned to one of my favorite and most trusted blogs, How Sweet It Is, for something over-the-top chocolate to make. As soon as my little eyes came across the words triple layer cookies and cream crunch bars, I knew I had to look no further. So using Jessica’s amazing recipe, I set out to make the most chocolatey delicious birthday treat ever. The result? Complete and total success.
Then, once the brownies have baked, you crumble oreos and sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake for about 2-3 more minutes. At this point, my I-want-to-devour-chocolate-now heart palpitations began.
Next, you drizzle a peanut butter chocolate sauce on top to make the entire chocolate creation stick together and then you refrigerate your masterpiece for 1-2 hours. It took massive amounts of self control not to grab the biggest spoon I could find and just start digging in. I’m actually surprised that didn’t happen. Don’t tell me this doesn’t look like something you’d want to dive face first into…
This is one for the ultimate chocolate lover. Definitely going down on record as one of the most amazing chocolate creations I have ever endeavored to make. I’m kind of drooling at my screen right now… Don’t judge me. You know you are too.
So here’s to life, to birthdays, to family, to friends, to chocolate and, most of all, to those who know how to enjoy all of those things at the same time. When you can do that, my friends, you are truly living the life.
