Hi folks. I sure hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It is so cold here in Ontario right now. We've had a wind storm whipping around. A bit of snow today too. Can someone remind Mother Nature spring should be coming soon. I am waiting. Patiently. Or moving. Whatever comes first.
So today I had some baking I wanted to get done. Have a gazillion projects on the go. So what does one do when they are already really busy? Well if you are me you add another recipe into the mix just for fun. Cuz you know, I'm not busy enough right now. *insert sarcasm here* I could not help myself though. On a bit of a brownie craze lately. I realized I really don't have a ton of brownie recipes on here. I mean I feel like I found the perfect one when I happened on The Best Brownies In The World. So they are really the only ones I ever make. This weekend I thought I would expand my brownie horizons. I made a couple different ones to test my theory about The Best Brownies In The World. I hate to be the bearer of bad news (or good depending on your outlook) but those other ones really are The Best Brownies In The World. I made two others tonight, I've made a gazillion over my lifetime and I have to say those other beauties are my faves, and I declare them The Best Brownies In The World. Well until I find another one I like better. It's a tough quest but I am up to the challenge. So I apologize to Kraft Canada for this but the ones I made tonight from one of their booklets I got about 10 years ago and use to make all the time are maybe the in the top 10, I'd rank this about 6th or 7th in the world. Maybe 8th. They are great but they're no Best Brownies In The World. Sorry Kraft.
Oh and sorry to the readers who are now sitting there shaking their heads as to why I posted these if they aren't really the best in the world. Sorry folks but when I started this blog I promised full disclosure. The good, the bad and the ugly. These are good brownies but are the best brownies you'll ever have? Not sure about that. I would say no. But that won't stop me from eating the entire pan. I mean a great brownie is a great brownie. Am I right!? Plus everyone has different taste in brownies. Me I like ooey gooey fudgey brownies. This is definitely ooey and gooey and sorta fudgey. With the marshmallows and chocolate over it ranks as doubly ooey and gooey. So try them out and see what you think. Two oven mitts up? One oven mitt up? Two oven mitts down? I'll let you be the judge. In the meantime I have more brownies to eat, er, I mean make. I mean someone has to test all the brownies in the world out to find the very best one right. *rubs her belly*

Seriously, so good. Perfect, well no. But I am on the hunt for perfection. So rest assured folks, I will find it. Like Daniel Day Lewis says in The Last of the Mohicans:
I will find you,
No matter what occurs,
No matter how far,
No matter how long,
I will find you!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
