Don't Bake the Brownies

I love eating brownie fact brownie batter is better than the final product.


I love eating brownie batter. In fact, the finished product isn’t nearly as good. There are often times where I buy packets of brownie mix that never make it into the oven. Now before you freak out, I don’t eat the whole packet in one sitting. But, give me a cup, a dash of water and a spoon and I am in hog heaven.

Years ago, my teenage sister in law was visiting. I had some brownie mix sitting on the counter. I told her and my ex-wife that I was going to get a haircut and my parting words were, “Do not touch the brownies…I will fix them.” I went to get my haircut and when I pulled back up to the townhome I could smell the odor of brownies baking. Grrrr…I was not happy.

When I got in the door I was accosted by both of them. They showed me the pan of brownies and were amazed at how thick they were. I WAS BUSTED! My wife didn’t know I was eating half the batter and she just naturally thought they were thin.

Years later, that same sister in law sent me a care package. Aside from cappacino and a few other munchies, there was brownie mix, a cup and a spoon. It was a stroke of genius. I was in the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert deployed to defend against a dictator in Iraq. And, suddenly I had a piece of heaven sitting on my military cot.
