PEANUT BUTTER STUFFED MARSHMALLOW BROWNIE BITES

January 2, 2014

Window shopping has become one of my favorite dates. Book stores, obviously. That’s one of our favorites. Another one is William Sonoma. We stopped in last week to do some real shopping (for Christmas gifts). I love going there. Smelling the smells. Sampling the samples. Trying to decide if I actually find all copper cookware desirable.

I never thought I liked marshmallows. They were merely dry, flavorless cotton balls to me. Like every warm bodied individual, I obviously loved s’mores. But snacking on just stale marshmallows would be a waste of time. And taste buds. Then at WS, they had peppermint marshmallows samples out with hot chocolate. Newton’s fifth law states that when something is a free sample, even if you do not like it, you will try it anyway. So there I was eating the marshmallow. Wow. Marshmallows can taste like this? Sign me up.

I rushed home with a new interest in the fluffy white guys. Maybe I’ll try making my own soon. For now, throw ’em in these brownies bites. They’re so good you can even get by with the non-speciality or gourmet kind.
