Since I’ve been super busy this weekend playing Marine wife and house decorator, I haven’t had time to take pictures…or stitch. M had his unit Christmas Party yesterday so I was tied up doing that after a mani/pedi appointment. Then last night was movie night for us so we settled down to watch something from our extensive library we haven’t seen in awhile.
Today has been spent at the grocery store and then cleaning. I have an old buffet that belonged to my grandmother that her brother built for her out of wood he found on Galveston beach after Hurricane Carla. I am setting out my small Santa collection on it for the holidays. I also baked today and as a peace offering for not having photos to share, here’s the recipe. It’s my own ‘creation’ and I’m calling them Brickle Brownies:
1 package of fudgie brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines because it was on sale)
1 cup of Heath brickle (found by the Nestle Tollhouse chips in my baking aisle)
1 jar Caramel topping
1 tub of dark chocolate icing (I used Pillsbury because it was on sale)
Make the brownies by the directions on the box for fudgy brownies (not the cake type). Add 1 cup of the Heath brickle. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes in a 9×13 pan that has had the bottom only sprayed with non-stick spray. Test for doneness with a toothpick. Let cool for 15 minutes, then poke holes about 1 inch apart using a bamboo skewer. Pour the cararmel topping over the top and then let the brownies cool completely. Pull the lid and foil off the icing and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir it then pour it over the top and let it set (about 30 minutes). Enjoy!
I’m sending them to work with M tomorrow for his Marines.
