HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD & BOB!
Yesterday was the both the hubs’s and my dad’s birthdays… which means we have a full weekend ahead of us, celebrating with both of them and I cannot wait. Tonight we will celebrate with the hubs’s dad and tomorrow night with my family.
The hubs’s dad prefers a more low-key style of celebration… so we will be heading over to have a birthday dinner and some brownie-cakes with the hubs’s dad.
Please tell me you have had brownie-cakes before…
I have had bite-sized brownie bites before… but brownie-cakes (brownies the size of cupcakes) + frosting? OK!!
I got the idea from work… a co-worker made a pan of brownies and frosted them with whipped chocolate frosting for a work party yesterday. I loved the idea! However, I took it one step farther and formed my brownies into personal-sized brownie-cakes. Making the brownies into cupcake-style brownies meant I got to play with my cupcake decorating tools (YES!). I would have made the hubs’s scale busting brownies… but I have a busy day ahead of me and opted for a box mix instead. So, I chose the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie mix (complete with chocolate chips) and Duncan Hines Whipped Chocolate Frosting.
I’m pretty sure this dessert will be a hit around this household…
