This is the brownie that could easily be on
one of those late night commercials for some
gadget or another~
"But wait! There's more!"
When I first saw we were making brownies on Marie's
site, I was so relieved.
Ahh, good, a quick and easy recipe.
Just what I need.
"Not so fast", warned my daughter. "This is after all a Rose recipe."
Still, brownies, how complicated could they be?
And then I read the recipe.
This definitely was not going to be a Q and E.
What can I say? I fell off the baking mojo.
Having my daughter with her new baby here for two weeks was wonderful
and truthfully, a three month old doesn't leave a lot of time for
things like baking.
Rocking took center stage.
What wasn't wonderful was she came to pick up her eldest daughter
who spends the summer with us.
I miss the hubbub that only a teenager can bring.
I miss her smile, her infectious laugh,
In short, I haven't felt much like baking.
Assembling the ingredients got me focused.
Going through the freezer looking for pecans,
I found a bag of frozen dreamy creamy frosting.
So really, this did turn into a somewhat Q & E.
Once the brownie base was made, I whipped the thawed
Dreamy Creamy and spread it over the top,
turning the leftover into truffles.
After sufficiently chilled,
it was time to make the ganache,
one of my favorite things to do.
And that's it!
