Hey all!! I swear I need to start getting up earlier. Between training for this race, and feeding my kiddo’s, then cleaning up after feeding my kiddos. My morning just flies by. Then I’m left trying to hurry up and post. So from now on, I’m gonna be up by 6 am!! Which is gonna be a challenge, cause, I don’t know how much you like your sleep, but I love to sleep. But it’s for the greater good. I will have so much more time in my day, and my weeks will probably go a lot smoother.
Speaking of weeks. We are almost coming to a close on our Christmas plate dessert week. There is so many recipes I want to post, but I wanted to be a little inventive too. So here is my latest invention. Mint Surprise Oreo Fudge Brownies. Try saying that 10 times fast. What a mouth full, but I had to get everything in.
The bottom is a Oreo crust, followed by those amazingly delicious mint truffle kisses. Yum!! Then as if that wasn’t enough, I topped it off with a extremely moist fudge brownie with Andes mint chips folded in. If you like mint and chocolate together, this is heavenly.
I wanted to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and then top that with hot fudge, but it was late and I didn’t have any ice cream :/ But, that would just send this over the edge. Seriously!! Think about it. Warm mint fudge brownie, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, and just for giggles, sprinkled with Andes mint chips. Is your mouth watering yet? Good then I’ve gotten my point adequately across 🙂 Enjoy!!
