Hi.
This is me.
Every single person in the house is napping.
At the same time.
Husband included.
Blame it on a 4:45 a.m. alarm and walking over five miles on a crazy boiling hot day at Disneyland.

Back to me.
I don't nap.
Naptime is too precious to waste sleeping.
Naptime is for babies, and preschoolers, and kids, and husbands.
Naptime is not for me.

My naptime means a quiet house.
Dave Matthews on the headphones.
Brownies in the mixing bowl.
Not just brownies.
BROWNIES.
I don't love brownies.
I love cupcakes.  I love cake.  I love cookies.  I love cheesecake.

I just like sort of like brownies.

But these brownies, these brownies are different.  I want to take them to prom.

Make them.  Today.  Seriously.
{I heart naptime's thin mint brownies}
You will love them.
Even more than Pioneer Woman's knock you naked brownies.
For reals.
But you can't take them to prom.  They already have a date.

Yes.  Mine have white frosting.  Not minty green.  The minty green ones are way cuter.  Weird, dramatic, me and my food coloring issues just couldn't deal with it.  Then again, maybe I should have made them green.  If they were green, I could totally resist them.  But then I would be home alone and forlorn on prom night and that would be super sad.

I also used half & half in the frosting instead of evaporated milk, because if you are going to be bad, be really bad.

Run along.  It's brownie time.

  16. Oh dear, I must try these asap! Your recipes always end up being favorites around here. I finally got around to making your toffee crack a couple weeks ago and made them 3 times in a week and linked to your recipe on my blog as soon as I tasted them! Dangerous to have around! I shared, I swear! Haha
