Do you ever feel like you just need chocolate? Or brownies? Well I do! So what did I do? I made these Mocha Biscoff Brownies!
I did. I just had too. I was having a bad day. I needed to bake. I find comfort in baking. I needed chocolate. Because let’s face it. Chocolate does sometimes make me feel better. If only ever in just that second when you put it in your mouth. The moment may flash by in just an instant as you chew and swallow. Luckly these brownies are here to stay!
I had some Biscoff spread that I needed to use up (so I wouldn’t keep eating it with a spoon!) So I thought how would it be on top of my brownie recipe that I make? I thought it was pretty fantastic. And because I can not leave well enough alone, I had to add mocha flavoring to it as well! Really, what is wrong with me?
So you might be asking, did she eat all of these herself? Well I am glad you asked. No I didn’t! I used some self control. I ate 1 or 2 or 3. Then I cut them up into bite size pieces, wrapped them in plactic and put them in the freezer. This is perfect because it is #backtoschool week here. So I can just pull these bite sizes out of the freezer and pop them into the kids lunch bags and there you go! ENJOY!
