With the Car Show yesterday, The 2022 Car Show it was a very full day, and we came home absolutely spent, but I still needed something else for the coffee cart this morning. I always like to offer some variety of goodies, but a lot of times, what I make depends on how much time I have too. So I made something easy-peasy and delicious to go along with my cherry almond scones. Cherry Almond Scones
There is nothing wrong with making things from a box, especially if the brand you use is reputable. I made brownies, from Ghirardelli, and just added some fun stuff on top. And everybody loves brownies right, so it is a win/win for everyone.
I started off with a the brownie mix and followed the directions for those, but also added a little mint extract to the mix, 2 tsp, and then some crumbled mint Oreo-styled cookies on top. That was it. Nothing fancy today, but definitely still very tasty.
I placed a whole bunch of mint cookies in a plastic bag and hit them with my meat tenderizer to crumble them up.
Once they were all crumbled up, I just spread them on top of the brownies and baked them for about 1 hour, then let them cool completely before cutting them into slices.
They were cool, refreshing, easy-peasy, and definitely delicious.
No one says you have to be a slave to the kitchen in order to make things tasty or fun. We all lead very busy lives, especially in the summer, so go easy on yourselves and have some fun too. Live life.
Stay cool, stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
