Linking with||Thoughts for Thursday with Home of Malones & East Coast Chic , Thinking Out Loud Thursday, Thank Goodness it’s Thursday, Inspiration, This is How We Roll, Shine Blog Hop, Three Things Thursday with Kristine @ The Foley Fam, Megan @ Absolute Mommy, Nay @ Coffee-N-Ink, Party at My Place with Grammie Time and all my favorites all week long here.
So earlier this week I shared a few easy ways to CELEBRATE SUMMER by making ordinary days extraordinary. There are so many fun “national” days over the summer which give a perfect opportunity to do something fun with your family but also share some sweetness with others.
I decided what better way to honor national fudge day than to share with some of my favorite people! Carly Jo is always on board for baking (and licking the bowl) so we headed to the store and grabbed 4 boxes of brownie mix.
Earlier this week, Astleigh at the Hill Collection shared a recipe for Chocolate Chip Brownie Cheesecake and I was immediately looking for a way I could make this but not devour the entire thing. Enter my fave coworkers and a perfectly timed staff meeting all on National Fudge Day. Coincidence? If you knew my boss you would think not! Ha!
I followed Astleigh’s recipe and cannot wait to serve this up for an afternoon pick me up!
We love taking sweet treats to our friends so we also cooked up a pan of brownies. Here’s the thing about baking for friends, I use to worry so much about it looking perfect or presenting it in some fancy way. Often this lead to the process either being more stressful than necessary or passing on it all together. Here’s the deal friends, have you ever seen anyone NOT like chocolate just because of the presentation?!! Sharing some brownies with friends does not have to be stressful, I mean the entire opposite of stressed is desserts so it’s totally just a given.
Check your stash of leftover birthday supplies. Pair a paper plate with a cute napkin and tada, you have a base for your brownies!
It’s summer, we are all trying to fit into our swimsuits so there is no reason to go crazy town on the number of brownies for each friend. Spread the joy and include just a few on each plate! Wrap with saran wrap and attach a cute printable (I’ve already covered this for you!) and deliver with the best part, your sweet smile! Side note; I am totally saran wrap challenged.
