I’m trying to figure out a way to tell y’all that salt on the top of these cookies is a very good idea and will change your world.
But as I write this I keep taking breaks to put an ice pack on my forearm that I burnt on the kettle while making a cup of tea (which I was making instead of having another glass of wine)… so I’m not really sure you should believe me.
HERE is why you should believe me. Because I recently went on a tour of Theo Chocolate in Seattle, and I learnt things. Important things. OK, maybe I mainly remember loving chocolate and the guy on the tour who cracked me up by asking the world’s most obvious questions.
But, what I did learn was when you make these cookies, which I might add have a lovely combination of chewy and crunchy going on, you can say this to your friends:
“The salt on top really adds something, try having a bite with the salt facing the top of your mouth and then for more of a hit, take the next bite with the salt facing your tongue.” (more…)
This week I came on to Clever Muffin, clicked on Recipe Index and was puzzled when I couldn’t find this recipe. This recipe, as in the one I’m currently writing, which I’m going to go out and say is game-changing for me. I have an obsession with Bakers Delights baked goods, and when I manage to successfully re-create them it’s a big moment in my life.
But this only helps if I remember to put them on the blog for easy baking access. Especially if I’ve altered the recipe at all. (more…)
You know what a hedgehog slice looks like? A dense brownie. You know what most hedgehog slices taste like? Crumbly biscuit. FAIL.
But not this recipe. Welcome to the awesome world of adding sweetened condensed milk to your hedgehog slice.
I am a liar. I have a recipe on this blog called ‘best chocolate chip cookies in the world’. They’re not. These are.
The old cookies are good, don’t get me wrong. But they’re a bit like reflecting on boys you dated in high school. They were nice and all, but not the real deal. Is that appropriate? Meh.
These brownies are, very literally, my personal brownie points. Because, as I’ve previously mentioned when making peanut butter choc chip cookies, I don’t like peanut butter.
So when I make something with peanut butter in it for you, I feel this is the epitomy of where I should earn some brownie points. I baked this with love, and I won’t even eat any.
