Red, White, and Blue Brownies
I hope you are all having an amazing Independence Day/Fourth of July! I kinda love America, how about you?
Almost everyone is off from work. BBQ in full swing! Fireworks – my favorite part. The lights, the sound, the atmosphere, I love it all! I love the food too.. Dessert anyone?
So I usually make cupcakes, but this year I wanted chocolate. Not just chocolate, I wanted brownies!
