You know those cute little tiny containers of Ben & Jerry's? I got three of them at the grocery store a few days ago. I thought, this will be a great way to indulge in a little ice cream without overdoing it!
That night I ate the Chocolate Fudge Brownie one. And even after licking the inside out with my tongue, it wasn't enough. Not nearly enough. So I grabbed another (also Chocolate Fudge Brownie), and would've eaten the third if Gabi hadn't thrown a fit about how it was supposedly HERS. Whatever. I didn't really want her Strawberry ice cream after such delicious chocolate anyway.
Not being able to satisfy my chocolate craving lit a massive chocolate craving fire under my quickly enlarging pregnant butt. The next day I made super rich brownies, with dark chocolate frosting. Whoever invented brownies has done this world an incredible favor, and these brownies did not disappoint in any way.
When that was all gone, I went and got all the stuff to make Chocolate Fudge Pie. Which was amazing! Each creamy, chocolaty bite melted in my mouth and tasted like heaven.
But now I have an extra crust and I can't bear to let it go to waste, so I'm going with my gut and making a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie tomorrow (anyone have a super great recipe?). And some Banana Bread with Ghiradelli chocolate chips because if I'm baking, I might as well make some bread, too. And I have the stuff for Chocolate Chip Cookies, the thought of which are making me salivate. So that's a definite yes on the cookies.
The lesson here? DO NOT BUY THOSE LITTLE CONTAINERS OF BEN & JERRY'S. Go for the big container and just get it over with in one go.
