Oh, it has been a day. A day mostly consisting of me making like a Tasmanian devil in my kitchen, trying to get ahead on work for the candy site and a few other side projects because–dum dum DUM–we’re moving in less than 2 weeks! Aaaaaah! (Spoiler alert: the new kitchen is SO much bigger than my current one, and I’m super psyched to cook in a space larger than a postage stamp. I’ve never tried it, but I imagine being able to fully extend both arms in your kitchen might be nice.)
Anyhow, today was a big blur of baking, cooking, throwing away THREE batches of one particular candy recipe because I have the Bad Touch and kept messing it up, eating way more sugar than is healthy for one person, and photographing all the results.
All of which is to say, these peppermint patty brownies were sadly just another face in the crowd. I know I tasted them, but I think I burnt my sugar receptors off with my all-candy diet, because they didn’t make a huge impression.
I cut up the pan and, after photographing them and giving one an exploratory nibble, I froze the rest to enjoy later. I’m sure they’re amazing, and I’m looking forward to tasting them after, say, a bowl of vegetables, or a nice healthy sandwich.
