Personally, I'm a blonde lover. Oddly enough, I've never made blonde brownies, aka Blondies. But I do love to make food with pastel colors and what is more pastel than Cadbury Milk Chocolate Eggs? And festive for the upcoming Easter weekend. I love Easter...bunnies, chick and pastels...oh and eggs. I do love eggs; and of course the whole reason for Easter of course, the religious aspect, which I love. So while I was Pinteresting? and Repinning on my Pinterest boards, I found one of the prettiest thing I had ever seen.
Let's hop on over....get it? bunnies...hop? Moving on...here is the result of the Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies.
Oh so pretty and very tasty. Very rich. Imagine a much smaller piece, because it is so rich, but imagine, when you walk into our dream Bed and Breakfast, after a long travel day, a nice plate of the puppies waiting for you. And realistically, one of our many puppies will greet you, too.
Or, not a blonde lover? Brunette is more your style? I also tried, from Cook's Illustrated their Classic Brownie. I'm not sure how I received this magazine, but the article was called "The Best Classic Brownies" Subtitled, Whatever happened to the chewy, not over the top, yet chocolatey brownie? My thoughts exactly....what has happened to it? Where has it gone? I am a sucker for words like "ever"...(best ever), (a good example of a best ever challenge)....so when this person made it their goal to make the Classic Brownie, not too cakey, not too fudgy, but "just right", I'm determined to try it and see if I hit gold as well.
Well, although, I don't personally think I struck gold, it is definitely good. Will I make it again? Probably not. Now my new brownie quest (I have many quests, so that's why I specified which one) is to find the Best Ever Brownie. For all I know it could end up being Ghirardelli Ultimate Fudge Brownie Mix. After all the word "ultimate" is equal to "best ever" as far as I'm concerned. I don't have shame using a box mix.
So what's your pleasure? Blonde or Brunette?
