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.

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday.  We enjoyed a nice dinner out last night, followed by his favorite cookie cake for dessert.  Just in time for the craziness to start tonight!   Seven extra people are coming for the weekend, and it is going to be crazy.  6 kids under one roof, they are going to be in heaven.  I think we might take them swimming on Saturday to burn some energy.  Today, I am shopping and cooking up a storm!  More brownies, lasagna, bread, muffins and anything else I can think of that we might need for the weekend!

I had a nice post all written up for you today to go along with these brownies.  I am not sure what happened though, because when I hit save it disappeared.  I am usually pretty good with the technical side of things, but this has me stumped.  My husband might disagree, but he designs computers for a living, so he doesn’t really count.  I was almost tempted to just give you the recipe and call it a day.  But, you all know me better than that, right :)

Did you guys check out the #chocolateparty 1st birthday last month?  I hope you entered to win some of the amazing prizes.  Or at the very least checked out all of the chocolate recipes from the whole month!  Now that #chocolateparty is headed into year 2, I finally decided to make some brownies.  They are my all time favorite dessert, but for some reason this is the first time I am making them incorporating the challenge ingredient.  Which for October happened to be………Candy!!!

Fudgy Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

What a crazy week of weather here in Colorado.  We went from 90’s last Sunday, to cold and non-stop rain the rest of the week.  School was cancelled on Friday because of all the flooding around the area.   Luckily we live in an area that was not affected, but not far from our house creeks were over flowing, and roads were closed.  If you have watched the news, I am sure you have seen some of the damage.  It will be a long and slow recovery for a lot of the areas.

I am finally posting on the actual reveal day for the #chocolateparty!  Honestly, I almost thought about skipping this month.  But September marks the 1 year anniversary, and I have done every other month over the last year, so I couldn’t skip the last one.  The ingredient we had to pair with chocolate this month?  Coffee.

On Friday I shared with you my Dark Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that are part of a competition with Nestle.  When they asked me to create something for them, I actually created two chocolate treats.  This is the other recipe I tested.  I was really happy when caramel was selected as the ingredient for this months #chocolateparty, because then I had a reason to share them with you right away!

Kit Kat Butterscotch Brownies


Kit Kat Butterscotch Brownies 3

I am pretty sure brownies are my all time favorite dessert. And the fudgier the better. I actually pinned this recipe forever ago, but then forgot about it. Then a friend (who pinned it from me) made them for something, and posted them on Facebook. It brought it all back, and I had to come up with a reason to make them. She raved about them, so I knew they were going to be good.

We had girls weekend in Denver a couple weeks ago, and I knew brownies was the perfect thing to make.  I mean girls need to have some killer brownies, while drinking wine and playing games in a hotel room, right?  These have a super fudgy brownie layer, topped with Kit Kat, and then topped with butterscotch.  Kind of over the top, but oh so good!

The girls loved these brownies.  If you don’t have Kit Kat, I think Snickers, Twix, or even Butterfinger would be great here.  I am sure you have tons of candy still around from Halloween, so get creative :)  I can’t wait to make this brownie recipe again, I might have just found a new base brownie recipe, it was so good!

Cookie Butter Swirl White Chocolate Chip Brownies

Cookie Butter Swirl Brownies

The weekend is here!  Time to get our paint on, and get this house in order.  A few months ago we bought my 7 year old all new bedroom furniture from IKEA.  We did not set it up in the town house, because we worried about moving it.  As soon as we get his room painted, we can assemble his new bed, desk, dresser, chairs, and shelves we got.  I am super excited to see it all come together!  Hopefully by Sunday night we will be knee deep in assembling furniture.

To leave you for the week, I have something sweet for you.  Brownies!  Brownies have to be my favorite dessert.  I can not say no to a rich and fudgy brownie.  These were a use up leftovers brownie.  I had part of a bag of white chocolate chips, and the last bit of a jar of Cookie Butter in my cupboard.  I was craving brownies, so I decided to just put it all together.  Oh my, these were amazing.  I wasn’t sure how the white chocolate chips would work, but they paired perfectly with the Cookie Butter.

Cookie Butter Swirl Brownies

Speaking of Cookie Butter, I finally got my hands on a jar!  When we were in WI in June, we stopped by Trader Joes and this was the first thing I added to my cart.  I am embarrassed to say I ate more of the jar with a spoon than putting it in a recipe.  But dang, this stuff is good!  The swirl on top doesn’t stand out visually, but you can definitely taste it!  Oh yes, you can taste it :)
