- Lucy, from Peanuts
When the unthinkable happens and I actually get the chance to cook, (Say, on an afternoon when I get home from work and decide to give myself a day off from school...) I do this exceedingly annoying thing. I pore over magazines, websites, cookbooks, blogs, and my ol' trusty binder of recipes looking for that perfect recipe.
Back in the day, when I had nothing to do but loaf about, read novels, eat truffles and bake at my leisure, the choosing was much easier. Man, I miss those days.
Just the part where I wasn't a big blob of agonizing indecision.
That being said, I think I [finally] made the right decision with this:
Do you agree?
Well, you will once you taste them. Fact. Why? Because this dessert involves chocolate, optional nuts, and homemade caramel sauce.
(Incidentally, one of my core beliefs is that nuts should always be optional.)
(I think it's vastly important to have such philosophical values, don't you?)
...I'll leave that to your discretion.
But I think we can all agree that the caramel sauce...
Mmm, heavy whipping cream. The stuff dreams are made of.
Well. My dreams, anyway.
These brownies? A-mazing.
