Brownie Batter Parfait

funsweets

Sometimes you need inspiration.
And sometimes you run out.
But sometimes it can be found in a bowl with a spoon.

That brings us to “live”.
Inspiration in the form of Brownie Batter.

So I was talking to Kristan and we decided when inspiration hits, why not hit a grand slam?
Inspiration found in a bowl with a spoon, getting knocked out of the park with a baseball bat.
What?
Clearly all this talk of raw batter has made my head loony.

Back to grand slams…we decided to take some brownie batter and do it lots of ways. Like a whole week dedicated to brownie batter on my site and hers.
It’s a two-fer.
Prepare to be slammed.

So first on my BB agenda is Parfaits.
Brownie Batter Parfaits.
You’ve got batter, brownie pieces and brownie batter whipped cream…yep that’s a new invention, people.

Say it with me…Brownie Batter Whipped Creammmm.
It’s a whole-lotta brownie in one jar.

Worth every calorie.

Start by making some brownies. Or buying them. Either works.
Break them up into pieces…

PhotobucketThen you’ll need to make your Brownie Batter Whipped Cream

My friends, it’s like shazam-good.  Shazaaaamity zam zam.

You’ll have to tie your hands behind your back to keep from eating it straight from the bowl.  That’s not hyperbole.

 

All you do is pour some dry brownie mix into some heavy cream and whip away.
PhotobucketThat’s it.  Try it, I swear to ya.

PhotobucketTHEN, make some brownie batter…but leave out those pesky eggs.

No need for them here.
Just brownie mix, oil and water…
PhotobucketNow assemble.

It’s as easy as schlemeel, schlemazel.

Batter, Brownie, whipped cream.  Repeat.

PhotobucketThis is some serious chocolate.

Hummina.

Photobucket

Brownie Batter Day 1…check.  Now hop over and see Kristan’s Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches with BROWNIE BATTER Frosting

That’s a serious cookie.

Now, are ready for a full week of this stuff?

It’s gonna be off the chizzle.

Okay wow. I think I love you both even more. I was just thinking today that I need to use that brownie mix for something other than brownies. I think inspiration will hit me this week!

So earlier today I asked my friend if she wanted to stop by my heezee.

She texted me back all confused about what that was. OBVIOUSLY she needs to be schooled by you.

I’ll take a bowl of that whipped cream, please.

Duuuuuuuuude. This rocks. Brownie batter WHIPPED CREAM?! Are you like, a wizard or something?
Also, I hate to be “that person” but you totally said it’ll be a gland slam and I was like, omg, a gland slam sounds painful but if it means I will be able to get my paws on some brownie batter whipped cream, you can slam my glands all you want. Also, I somehow made that sound horridly inappropriate and I am sorry. I’m having BBWC withdrawls.
