Apparently today is “Fat Tuesday” or “Mardi Gras” for you New Orlean-ers. This is the day some people feast on lots of food in preparation for the fasting of the Lenten season.
Mardi Gras has always just been a normal day for me, as with other “holidays” that we do not get a day off of work. Why bother celebrating?
With that said, it just so happens I made brownies over the weekend and I decided I would share the recipe in the spirit of Fat Tuesday!! Jessica from How Sweet It Is has some killer recipes, so if you want THIS recipe, head to her website NOW!!
I duplicated the recipe (omitting the red food coloring and the frosting) and it turned out to be the most fudge-like brownie I’ve ever had!
Will I eat the whole pan because it is Fat Tuesday? No. Do they meet my PMS-related chocolate craving (that could just be my excuse to eat chocolate)? Why yes, yes they do.
Happy Mardi Gras…try not to be too indulgent.Print
