Another reason to be my friend: If I like you, I’ll bake you things!
A friend’s sister was ill a few months ago and gave me her ticket to the Broadway play, God of Carnage. The play, staring Jeff Daniels, Marcia Gay Harden, Hope Davis, and James Gandolfini was excellent, but I felt bad that the original ticket holder couldn’t enjoy it. I promised to make delicious “thank-you” baked goods the next time our paths crossed. Last week a group of us met up to see 9 to 5 The Musical and I was able to deliver on my promise! The show was great – I loved Allison Janey’s character and the high energy music was the perfect way to de-stress from a long work day. I was really lovin’ the early 80’s dresses and plan on looking through the attic to see if my mom saved anything from that time period…
Now on to the brownies! It’s been a hectic week, so I used a little help from my friend Trader Joe and whipped up a batch of TJ’s truffle brownies.
This boxed mix is probably the best I’ve ever tried. I mixed 1 stick of butter and 2 eggs into the deep, dark, chocolate-y mix and added some rainbow sprinkles to make it more interesting. I wish you could scratch n’ sniff this screen – the brownies made my apartment smell SO good!
As I was wrapping up the brownies, I had to “test” a little piece to make sure it tasted OK. These chewy, chocolate-y, sprinkle-y brownies passed with flying colors :-)
