I hear the Oscars are this weekend. Everywhere I turn there are ads, commercials, and party ideas for the Oscars. I have to say, I am not much of a movie person. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy watching movies. But once I see it once, I don’t really ever need to see it again. It is entertaining for the 2 hours I am watching it, but after that I am done. We have a friend who is obsessed with movies, and he does not understand how I do not have a “favorite” movie. So needles to say, I won’t be watching the Oscars on Sunday. But, I do have a dessert that would be great to snack on if you are watching them. Even if you don’t watch them, you are going to want to make these.
I think I have made it know around here that brownies are my all time favorite dessert. And the fudgier the better. So why not turn a classic cocktail into my favorite dessert? A Mudslide is a creamy chocolate and coffee flavored cocktail, that is topped with whipped cream. It has all the makings for a perfect dessert. Boozy desserts are kind of a big thing around the internet. A trend I really haven’t gotten into, until now!
I adjusted my favorite brownie recipe for these mudslide brownies. They are fudgy, rich, chocolate-y, and full of coffee flavor. Then I topped them with an Irish cream buttercream frosting. The perfect combination sweet, chocolate, and coffee. I brought these brownies to my son’s school to share with the teachers. I was a little concerned they would be over powering, but they were a hit. Everyone loved them, and they disappeared so quickly!
