Happy day-after-Sunday! Sounds better than that other word, right?
I hope you had a good weekend. My surgery-recovering brother was in town for the weekend. He’s on crutches right now, and let met tell you, if you think people on crutches aren’t agile, my brother will make you think again. He moves quicker than most can walk! If there were a crutching championships, he would definitely be a contender…
You know what I’d love to be a contender in? The cake and brownie batter championships. I can’t seem to stop making random treats with boxed cake and brownie mixes! These latest brownie batter truffles are one of my best yet, I think.
I’ve never been a huge brownie person. I know I shouldn’t say that out loud, but it’s the truth. But I do love brownie batter. I remember in high school my friends and I would whip up a bowl of (eggless) brownie batter and just eat the whole bowl. I’m still waiting for that sixteen year old metabolism to come back. Maybe a marathon training appetite would suffice?
Since we’re only two weeks out (?!) from Halloween, I dressed my brownie batter truffles for the occasion. The best part about that is the fact that since Halloween is spooky, you don’t have to do everything in your power to have the perfect “dip” when coating your truffles — go ahead and let them be messy! 😉
These truffles have no secrets – they taste just like what you’d think — brownie batter. Since they’re are so quick and simple, I may make them around the holidays, too! Maybe a mint chocolate version. Ohh, candy canes! Mmm!
