So the other night my cousin (Brooke at whatbakesmehappy.com) and I decided we wanted to pull off an all-nighter.
Nope. That didn't turn out the way we hoped. Asleep at 1:00 A.M. Um... yes.
Anyways, it was about 11 P.M. and we felt like we wanted to bake! As I was going through a cookbook these delicious Coconut Swirl Brownies caught my eye! My cousin on the other hand baked some yummy cherry cake pops....
I only ate about 3 of her cake pops.
HA! Just kidding I ate all of them....
So once these amazing brownies were finished, I ate them!
Even though I wasn't supposed too...shhhh!!
They were mouth-watering and extraordinary!!
I was going to bake something new next but my family loved them so much I have to make them again. Gosh, I am such a kind person to make them again for them. So much work.
Here you go! Enjoy and happy eating!
