I did something silly. I gave up chocolate for lent. 40 days of no chocolate. So Tuesday night I got my last chocolate fix for over a month and naturally I finished off the chocolate cake from the birthday celebration. And it was just as good as it was Saturday. And I really could go for some right now too.
So if I didn't already torture myself enough with the bowl of Cadbury eggs sitting on the table, the Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate sitting on the microwave that I walk passed every minute, I decided to make brownies with four different forms of chocolate. O okay Meli.
I really did it because I got a request for them and it was Thursday at 9:30 and I had yet to make anything to bring to N's the next day. And these were super simple and they looked super amazing. And they were gone oh in about an hour of me being there, so I'm assuming they were super good tasting too.
