Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites are the perfect poppable treat! Stash some in the fridge for an emergency indulgence.
Can we talk about the look your kids give you when they’ve finally pushed you to the brink of insanity?
Like, I’m just over it. I consider myself to be a patient and fairly delightful person, but every few months I reach the end of my rope.
Naturally, this normally occurs after days of the children fighting and picking at each other – “he looked at me funny,” “she touched me with her pinky toe,” – topped off with the normal stress of being a human who has to pay bills and provide shelter to other humans.
Honestly, we don’t say it enough – life is freaking hard.
And then I’ve got these two tiny people, arguing all the livelong day, completely ruining my trip to Target and we all KNOW THAT US MIDDLE CLASS WHITE LADIES TAKE OUR TRIPS TO TARGET SUPER SERIOUS.
Ya mess with Target, ya mess with something deep inside my soul. It is what it is.
So what happens is, I finally give my kids what I call a “Come to Jesus/DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT I OWN YOUR LIFE” meeting. And what I need you to understand is that I don’t yell during such an occasion.
Instead, I lean in. I whisper. My face takes on the appearance of a potential serial killer.
I mean, I’m just saying that during these sessions, I am slightly afraid of my own self. My husband literally just clears the premises, which to be honest, is a wise move on his part.
Much respect, husband. You’ve got life figured out.
But my children?
THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO LOOK AT ME LIKE I’M THE CRAZY ONE.
Ummm…okay sooooo…first of all? You guys did this. So I am zero percent having those confused “are you crazy” faces.
Do you know what’s crazy? Fighting over a fart.
So there ya go. Kids, man. I love them, but sometimes I really need twenty-eight brownies and a shot of vodka. And when that happens, I want the good stuff.
Brownies, I mean. Cheap vodka is fine, no complaints here.
This brownie recipe is pretty darn phenom. Fudgy and dense, there are no crazy ingredients and they whip up with a bowl and a spoon. Easy peasy.
For this batch, I baked them into little bites and added a minty buttercream because buttercream is life and I won’t apologize for that.
Stash them in the fridge for one of THOSE DAYS. You won’t regret it!
