Quick & Painful Brownie Chunks

Help ease yourself into the stressful Christmas season by whipping up some Quick & Painful Brownie Chunks!

Just follow these simple steps:

1) Thaw your container of brownie mix that you bought from your kids' school.

2) Take out your non-stick (ha ha) mini muffin pans, and put a scoop of the mix into each cup just like the directions say.

3) Cook them for 15 to 20 minutes. It doesn't matter which, they won't come out right anyway. Oh, wait, I'm getting ahead of myself.

4) Take them out. Put them on the counter to cool. Before they cool, scoop out part of one for your four-year-old so he doesn't have a brain aneurysm.

5) Allow to cool fully.

6) Take a spatula or some other item which won't damage the non-stick (ha ha) coating of the pan, and carefully run it along the edges of the muffins.

7) Pop out the top chunk of each of the 24 muffins into a container, remember to curse each one individually, and leave the crumbled mess of muffin remains in your pan.

8) Photograph the whole disaster, and write about it in your blog so that you can feel *some* sense of accomplishment.

9) Get on a chair, retrieve the big bottle of Kahlua from the back of the top shelf of your pantry closet, and drink directly from the bottle until the urge subsides.

10) NEVER make those godd*mn brownies again.

Clearly Martha Stewart I'm not. Oh well, I guarantee you the kids will eat the whole mess anyway.

you know, that whole mess and crisis would be averted if you realized that brownie dough isn't really for baking. It always turns out if you just eat it with a spoon from a containter. Always.
