i discovered several things today.
1. we are lazy.
and by "we", i mean americans.
i made homemade brownies last night and they were so simple.
so simple that i had all the ingredients in my house.
so simple that it puts the silly box/bag of mix to shame.
so amazingly simple.
2. i really am obsessed with chocolate and peanut butter.
like, for real.
as if my occasional peanut butter m&m dinner-on-the-fly,
and my manhunt in london and kenya for a n y t h i n g
that contained choco & pb wasn't evidence enough
(literally. i walked around the heathrow airport at least three times.)
i made said brownies and put choco chip pb cookie dough on top.
no i will not stop it.
i did.
3. i have little self control when it comes to said choco pb obsession.
after coming home from the gym, i cut those suckers into squares
to put on cupcake wrappers and onto a plate for bible study.
and then couldn't contain myself.
i had to have one.
then another baby one.

these things are amazing.
incredibleness is adapted from recipe girl.

choco chip pb cookie dough brownies:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
Pour in water, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix until well blended.
Spread evenly in a 9x13 inch baking pan.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top isn't shiny and the brownie isn't looking jello-jigglish.
Let cool for at least an hour (or overnight, like moi).
