Chocolate Delight

Want to learn how to keep your youngest homegirl and her friend out of trouble occupied for about twenty minutes?  Ask them to make brownies!  Not only did they make brownies...they, just read and look, it's almost better than sitting them in front of the TV with video games.
 




Once their brownies were baked and cooled, they carefully placed them in an 8x8 baking dish.





Oh why are they upside down?  They taste the same, right?





Then they made chocolate pudding and poured over the top.  I'm not groovin' on the blue nail polish.





You can't see this, but they are licking the bowl the pudding was in.




See?  Poor Courtney only got the knife they were using to scrape the bowl.





Then they iced it with whipped cream.  I'm kinda thinking they are kissing up to Paula Deen.




Homegirl with their creation.  Guess what?  They didn't share.  >: (

And that's how it's done!

OH MY Katherine. I HATE BROWNIES-----NOT!!!!! ha ha .... They look so good--with all of the extra stuff on them... Add a little ice cream and you have a Hot Fudge Sundae.....

That gal is going to turn into a chef like her Mama.

Proving once again that you can't have too much of a good thing!

It's a lot like my Brownie Tuesdays. Only sometimes I use butterscotch or vanilla pudding. Either way, it's all good.

I am teaching my 3 1/2 year old Granddaughter to cook. It is good to let them loose in the kitchen. Good stuff!

Paula Deen would certainly be proud! Sounds like they need to make two pans next time ... which should keep them occupied for at least an hour! LOL
