Brownie….and friends. You cannot go wrong with Smarties!

As many of you know, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. But last night I was craving brownies with ice cream. Mmm picture this:  hot gooey brownies with vanilla ice cream poured on top. But, I did not have any ice cream….

And I was too lazy to get dressed and get my lazy butt to the corner store.  So to cheer myself up, I chose to add a bag of Smarties that I had saved for a rainy day.  And it just so happened to be raining too! Bizarre.

So this is how it went…
