Brownie Dough Bites

I’ve been writing this blog for a while now but I realized recently that one large thing has been left out. I have yet to describe my lifelong best friend LT in a sugary confection. Shame on me. I discussed my friends Lo & Leona and which recipes correspond with their personalities yet LT somehow has not been given a blog post. So I’m apologizing with chocolate. LT has lived across the street from me since we were 3 years old so I literally do not remember my life without her. When we were little she was a tiny little runt who wore big glasses. Today she is one of the funniest people I know. And now I’m the runt with the glasses. I think she’s pretty awesome and sometimes my mom accuses me of stalking her. But so what if I stare out the window sometimes to see if her car is there and immediately run over if I see any signs of life. That is a totally normal thing for friends to do. I think.


Anyway…the longest we’ve ever been apart was the summer she lived in France and complained to me about getting bored with eating caprese salad on fresh baguette every day. Boo freakin Hoo, LT. Just kidding, I gave her suggestions for other French sandwiches and tried to get her to come home by bribing her with cupcakes. She didn’t take the bait, but I survived. This summer, LT is studying non stop for the MCAT, or as I like to call it “that big doctor test.” (She’s the smart one in case you were wondering.) So to try to help her get into Med School (and yes, baked goods DO have that power) I decided to whip up some no bake brownie bites. These chocolatey dough bites are similar to the cookie dough bites I made a few weeks ago, but have much, much more chocolate intensity.( I even added a peanut butter glaze on a few of these babies, just for good measure.) They are like frozen brownies, which is perfect for hot humid July days. And seeing as she is studying to get into Med School, I think loads of chocolate is completely necessary. I don’t care what anyone says, but chocolate has healing powers. It can make you feel better after any bad day, broken heart, or even a big ‘ol test. So here’s to my lovely best bud LT for all her hard work studying & for the many many years that she has put up with me.

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
