This is decadent. If you’re looking for something delicious and chocolatey, that doesn’t require too much time, make this. If the pictures do not translate well, it’s basically really fudgey brownies topped with a (rather large) dollop of rich dark chocolate mousse, garnished with morebrownies and chocolate shavings.
While this creation was intended for and served on Valentines Day, it’s really applicable to any time (really, any time). Like…now. There are no hearts or red sprinkles–just good ole’ chocolate (Who needs love, anyway?)
Another thing is the pathetic fact that I’m still a little bit hooked on boxed brownie mix. Even though I’m completely aware of all the preservatives and disgusting chemicals in the box, I always cave in to its mystifying powers. Quick, easy and fudge-like. Especially if the brownie is not the center of the dessert, I fall to the box.
Today I’m actually making Paleo brownies, and I am interested to see how they turn out. Somehow I have this feeling that our friends Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker are the overpowering villains to the innocent Paleo. But I’m willing to give a healthier option a chance. I think.
But for now, your Monday might require a little bit of the option below, and that’s okay.
