Do you ever have those days where you just need a little bit of a chocolate fix?
Well, these are my go to, simple as anything, answer to that chocolate craving.
I wish I had a great story to accompany these little morsels, but alas, they were created out of ‘necessity’.
It was the middle of report writing season and our house was out of chocolate (all you teachers out there, I know you understand). I searched the cupboards, but could only uncover the last few baking choc chips and a sad box of cocoa tucked away in the back recesses of the pantry.
I knew that if I simply tipped the sad leftover contents of the choc chip bags into my mouth, the chocolatey goodness would be over in mere moments. So, I decided to make the best of the situation and do what all teachers do at this time of year… PROCRASTINATE!
I decided to make chocolate cookies, to help the chocolate spread further and last longer throughout the day… I emptied a bit of this and that into a bowl, making notes as I went, threw them into the oven and watched and waited.
15 minutes later and I definitely didn’t have cookies… but I did have light, chocolatey and moist bites of tastiness. Thus, Triple Chocolate Brownie Bites were born!
