You know that person?
The one who’s never met a so called “too rich” dessert?
The one who can eat her cake and your unwanted frosting too?
The one who incorporates chocolate chips into her breakfast anytime she can, always has something for dessert and takes her kids out on Halloween so she can eat their candy?
Yeah, that’s me.
So tonight when we ran out of Christmas cookies – I made dessert.
It was, if I do say so myself, fairly fantastic so I wasn’t surprised that Ivy asked for a piece to go into her lunch tomorrow.
I assured her that would be fine and found myself suddenly subjected to a cross examination on what exactly I would or would not be eating for the rest of the evening worthy of a lawyer to be.
It seems she feels I’m untrustworthy when it comes to desserts.
After the girls went to bed I, of course, went to have another piece and found that Ivy had left nothing to chance.
So I just had one more small piece…
…or maybe two…
If you’d like to try these Cranberry Chocolate Chip Blondies for yourself I found the recipe here: http://www.averiecooks.com/2014/11/cranberry-chocolate-chip-blondies.html
I needed to bake it quite a bit longer than the recipe called for and happily discovered that a few minutes outside at 0° will work just as well as letting them sit an hour before cutting. All in all they were quick, easy and, obviously, tasty!
One day, when Ivy’s among friends who brag that one’s dad could beat up another, she will trump all with a claim that begins, “yeah, but you know what my *mom* can do?”
Oh, I knew this talent would be useful sometime! 🙂
Chomp on, Jessie. Chomp on.
Too cute, and yum! 🙂
Yup on both counts! 🙂
I knew I was in trouble the first time my child put her arms around my neck, leaned her little face up to mine, and said, “Why does your mouth smell like chocolate? Can I have some?”
But you’re still in trouble for posting that recipe. How could you do that to me? Didn’t I tell you that my family suffers from this congenital genetic trait causing us to accidentally memorize all recipes involving chocolate chips? It’s a curse, I tell you.
I have a girl like that, turns out those chocolate radars work just about from birth! Sorry about the recipe thing. It is, unfortunately, terribly easy. I think I memorized it on accident and now I’m trying to think of reasons why not to make it again tonight…
Couldn’t stop smiling! It looks like your daughter knows you really well. 🙂 I don’t usually make dessert, but eating it — now that’s a whole different matter altogether. (And yours look yum!)
love the note — and that you posted it for all to see!
