Fudgey brownies topped with a cinnamon candy infused frosting
The swimming pool is out to get me. Ok – well not really, but I’ve been having some seriously bad luck in the pool.
So – ya know I’ve had to cross train like crazy since I can’t run these days. Well, half my time is spent swimming – or it was.
My trouble all started on Christmas Eve Eve. I had this feeling like my ear was filling up with water. & then the memories all “flooded” back from my years on the high school swim team (as the slowest and least knowledgable swimmer ever – I mean I did a flip turn in a breaststroke event!) I was experiencing a good old ear infection. & this one was a beast!
I let that booger heal and then I proceeded back to the pool. & within a day’s time I managed to infect the other ear!
So, I took some time off to let me ears fully recuperate. Then, not 3 swim’s later, I totally messed up my eye! That boy watered all day and then was really swollen.
This one was probably my fault. I read online to use dish soap as an anti-fog goggle treatment. I had previously gotten a little in my eye, but after that, I was really careful about “buffing” the soap after it dried. Well, I guess not that careful.
From now on, I’ll just swim foggedly (yea, that’s not a word) through the pool!
Well – enough with that – now on to this awesome treat – perfect for Valentine’s Day!
A bag of red hots has been staring me down. I wasn’t sure how to use them, but then it came to me. I took my favorite brownie recipe (yea, it’s made with pumpkin, but you’d never know it) and added a frosting, but not just any frosting. A frosting flavored with red hot cinnamon candies. Simply melt the candies into a syrup and voila. I recommend making the syrup the day before.
Do you have any special Valentine’s plans?
