There’s no shortage of chocolate recipes floating around the internet, especially this week with it being Valentine’s Day and all. A more organized person who writes a food blog would’ve even planned such a thing out. I always chuckle when I get a PR pitch about my upcoming editorial calendar. This little space of the internet is about as organized as my daughters’ room. This is one place in my life where no plans are actually comforting. I can be who I want, when I want. It just so happens that my craving last week coincided with a holiday where chocolate plays so prominently. Why is that exactly?
Well, you know those bittersweet brownies I shared the recipe for last week? I let out an audible gasp when I first tasted them. Two of my best friends, and their kids, told me they were the best brownies they’d ever eaten. Can you guess who didn’t like them? I’ll give you a clue. They share my DNA. Yes, my daughters are only milk chocolate fans. I really thought those brownies would change their mind, but it was a no-go. Thankfully I don’t rely on just their critique for all my recipes. Based on Virginia’s eating habits lately, I’d only be writing about bowl after bowl of Cheerios. It seems my once incredible eater, who loved pretty much anything, has become a fuss pot. I’m not worried, at all.
But back to these brownies. These milk chocolate brownies. I was determined to make a brownie the girls would like. What I didn’t expect was to come up with a recipe that would make me moan from the first bite. If the bittersweet brownies made me gasp, well, these milk chocolate brownies and I were going to need a room, and a cold glass of milk to finish things off.
