Weigh-In Wednesday #4

Well, all thanks to Laura's delicious brownies and the MOM's birthday party, I did not go down one least I did not go up, either!

163 lbs.

How to make Laura's brownies, so you can all get fat with me:

Get a brownie mix (any kind, but I used Pillsbury), mix it up according to box.
Get a couple Symphony chocolate bars (we used the ones with toffee, I kind of think any choc. bar would do.)
Pour 1/2 of the batter into pan.
Place the Symphony bar on top (I broke it up and left small spaces so I didn't need as many candy bars)
Pour the rest of batter over top and bake. I think it probably baked a little longer then the directions say, so just watch it. If you use a toothpick to tell if it's done (does that even work with brownies?) go in at an angle so your tp doesn't just come out covered in melted chocolate.
Let it cool for a while so the chocolate can kind of firm up. Enjoy. It's really good the next day when the choc. is a bit firmer. I'd say don't refrigerate, b/c it would probably make the choc. too hard.

And there's your bit of irony for the day: Me giving you a very fattening recipe with my weight. At least now you know why I weigh what I weigh.

9 Words to brighten my day:

You'll get there. Hopefully I will too someday. But not today, because those brownies sound awfully tempting!

That sounds delicious! The toffee symphony bars are so good, and so bad at the same time!

Jamie said...

That sounds super good. I sure do love brownies and symphony bars! I never did care for sweets before, but once I got pregnant with Sara, it was all over. I would go through 3 or 4 symphony bars per week when I was pregnant. That's over 150 chocolate bars for the whole pregnancy!!! Sorry, I got carried away rambling about chocolate.

Gee thanks. Now I want brownies! I'm trying to lose baby weight right now and am just a bit above you: 169. Good luck in your efforts!

Also, thanks for entering my giveaway!

I'm honored that I made your Blog...thanks. Those Brownies are sinful! You are right, that any choc. bar will do, but the Symphony ones with the almonds and toffee can do any one in! Happy to help! LOL!

Honestly, those were the best brownies I've ever had. My waistline would be much better off if I didn't know how easy they are to make.
