Guest Post – Cookies and Cream Brownies

Hey y’all! Today my fantastically funny and sparkly friend Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen is guest posting. Every time Kristan posts, I make sure I don’t have a drink in my hand, because I’m sure to be howling with laughter as I read, and it’s not ideal to spray the monitor with Diet Coke (not that I know from experience or anything). Kristan is one of the kindest bloggers I know. She’s always helping other people, and I’m so grateful she agreed to help me while I’m on vacation! She’s just that kind of wonderful. And now I need a brownie.

Hey guys!! I’m Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and I came over here to give you some brownies.
Virtually, I mean. Obviously I can’t REALLY give you brownies right now. Although it would be super cool if people could give us stuff through the computer, wouldn’t it?
But it would be scary too. I mean, hello spam folder.
Anyways, I made you brownies because if you’re on a site called Bluebonnets and Brownies you obviously like brownies a lot. So I figured that these were guaranteed to make all of Amber’s readers love me and carry me off on their shoulders chanting my name or something, which has been a lifelong dream of mine.
And of course, as the person being carried off on shoulders, my job would be to act humble yet triumphant at the same time. Which I’ve been practicing. So…are you ready to do this thing?

Please don’t judge me for using a brownie mix. In my defense, I’m a mom and I’m always busy cleaning or cutting cheese into cubes or folding paper airplanes or whatever.
Also, I do not actually drink milk, but if I DID, it would be in a miniature martini glass as pictured above. I think that’s probably the best way.
Thanks so much to Amber for letting me visit today and I hope to see you guys over on my blog!!

    These sound so freaking good. And of course drinking milk out of a martini glass is totally on my list of things to do now. ;-)

    I am wierd that I am picturing that milk martini glass as a big pool that I am floating in with an oreo floaty lounge chair? Wait…don’t answer that.

    I’m going to need to see your triumphant yet humble look next week, so I hope you really have it nailed down.

    Also, yes. Milk in martini glasses. It’s the way to go.

    I’ll need a few milk martini’s to go with the amount of these brownies I want to eat! Thanks for hosting Kristan while you’re on vacation Amber. Enjoy your holiday. Great post Kristan!

    I know the look…when that happens totally call me and I can gather people to surround you and sing “for she’s a jolly good fellow”…
    wait, yeah, that probably won’t happen because I kinda have a thing about the word jolly…but you get the idea.

    Boxed brownies are good! That’s why they sell so many of them! Besides that leaves more time for important stuff, like making tiny brooms for Butterbeer Cupcakes…adorable, BTW.
