With the work on the bedroom last week (I'll have before & after photos for you later; we still have a few things to work on before I declare it 'finished'), I didn't really want to do a lot of cooking, but I did want to provide food for the hard-working guys. Ripping out carpet and underlying accessories? You bet that's hard work.
So, there were cold cuts and cheeses, rolls and condiments. Cold beverages, too. (Paper plates and plastic ware, as well...I wasn't about to add loads of dishes to my to-do list.) Nothing too fancy.
But, I did bake up a batch of chocolate chip cookies, as well as these Brrr-ownies, from Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours.
The 'brrr' comes from the chopped up York Peppermint Patties in the batter...I thought they could have been more mint-y, and the flavor better distributed, but they smelled wonderful, and everyone liked them.
I'd definitely try this one again, but use a different candy, maybe? Or add peppermint essence. My guys like strong flavors, after all.
