My friend, faithful blog reader and fellow foodie Ellene recently sent me the most amazing recipe!
Are you ready for this one – Monster Cookie Dough Frosting!
Hello! That was brilliant! Now why didn’t I think of that! Who doesn’t love monster cookie dough?!
The original recipe from Living Simply called for a peanut butter cupcake to hold this amazing frosting – but you know me. It’s all about chocolate here.
So Angel Girl switched up the cupcake for our favorite Fudge Brownie.
We took it to the church potluck yesterday and brought home an empty pan. Good thing Angel Girl set a few aside for a picture before we left!
