Making everything for the first time
My mother perfected brownies. She managed to create a brownie recipe made of six simple ingredients. And this isn’t just any brownie, she produces incredibly moist, flavorful brownies with a very very thin crispy crust that contrasts with the gooey insides.
Now, I’m good with the basic brownies. I’m extremely happy whenever I manage to do it right because that means I won’t disappoint the people I have to feed. But, sometimes, I have the urge to add some oomph that appeals to my raging sweet tooth.
Enter my sister’s marshmallows of choice. Plus oats. Plus chunks of semi-sweet chocolate. All that results in extreme gooiness that will block your arteries and will require a half-hour horizontal rest after downing a hot cup of tea.
