Guest Spot – Amazing Brownie Recipe

From time to time I will feature some friends recipes here to change up my blog. Sometimes you end up using the same ingredients, techniques, and flavor combinations without even realizing it. Getting a friend’s perspective always helps, right?

Below is my foodie friend Brigid’s also known on Instagram as bostonbabbler Slutty Brownies recipe. Let me know what you think and give my girl a follow! 🙂

These are perfect for game day because you can easily decorate with your team’s colors. If you’re in a time crunch, use store-bought dough and brownie mix; these taste amazing no matter what!

You’ll need the following equipment and preplanning:

  • Baking pan (9×13 or 9×9, depending on how thick you want them)Cookie dough (recipe below)Oreos  (regular, double stuff, flavors with a cream that matches your team colors…endless possibilities!)Brownie batter (recipe below)Candy in your team’s colors (sprinkles, M&Ms)
