Brownie Batter Week Recap

Brownie Batter week has officially ended.

I am in mourning.


I am also exhausted!  Trying to start a food trend on the internet is hard work.



BUT with the help of my bestie I think we did a pretty alright job of it.

We worked our brownie batter out.


Let’s look back at the week.

First up we had Brownie Batter Parfaits and Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches with Brownie Batter Frosting.

Then we had crazy awesome Brownie Batter Cupcakes and a Brownie Batter Milkshake.  Seriously now.

Next Kristan took the day off.  Growing a baby makes people tired.  It’s true.  So I went it alone…

I made some Brownie Batter Krispie Treats and then I used those same krispie treats and turned them into a Patriotic treat.

And finally rounding out the week, we both went no-bake…Kristan did some Brownie Batter Truffles and I did Brownie Batter Bark.

What ended up being really great about this week is we even inspired one of our friends to join in…Do you guys know Lauren?  She made these amazing No-bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes

Love that!


Beyond Brownie Batter I was also busy over at my other site.

We man-judged…have you voted?

We talked True Blood, Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Bachelorette…I even shared a some of my favorite summer stuff.


Also, if you subscribe to my site via RSS feed or email (on the right sidebar), you might have noticed a change.  I no longer have the whole post visible via feed, but just a short excerpt.  I have gotten quite a few emails and messages regarding the change.  Here’s my reasoning…I really want you guys to come and visit my site.   Why, you ask?  Because this site is my job and it’s only really profitable if you show your smiling face around these parts…it’s that plane and simple.  I appreciate every last person who subscribes, so I hate to lose readers based on this simple change…I hope the money stuff doesn’t turn you off, it’s just the facts.


Hope you have a great weekend!

Food trend success!

Ali @ Gimme Some Oven

SUCH a great week of recipes! Trying to decide which one to try first — brownie batter is the best!! 🙂


I think I’m in mourning as well. This needs to be a yearly (monthly?) tradition. We all need more brownie batter in our lives.

I think I may do a cake batter week and use your brownie batter week as inspiration, Shelly! I think that milkshake is my favorite of the week. 🙂

I made the Brownie Batter Krispie Treats for a co-workers birthday today. I got here at 8:30. It is now 8:37. They are ALL GONE.


There can never be enough brownie batter in life!


Best week EVER!

Meghan @ After the Ivy League

I’m so sad brownie batter week is over! Such great recipe ideas, I think I’m definitely making those adorable rice crispie treats for the 4th!

Laura Wiebe

I get the reasoning behind the summary only posts but I just read too many blogs to come over every time. I’ll miss you but I’ll be unsubscribing.

luv what you do

That was one mouth watering post!!!


You post so many good recipes that your blog is one of the very few i actually will put forth the effort to click on
as i love anything chocolate
LOVED this series
although I highly think that making all of them will put a damper in my pants haha
What about doing a food trend in oreos? I’d actually repost to tumblr if that happened 🙂


I agree Oreo week sounds like a winner!


Awesome week! Both of you are incredibly creative. I think chocolate anything is necessary as often as needed.



I heart brownie batter week! And as for the email excerpt, no worries — almost all the blogs I subscribe to do the same thing. Except you hafta always promise to include a foodie pic in your email message. esp if chocolate is nearby. to make us drool. And come visit. And be happy. 😉


Love-love-LOVED all of it!! Great job!

Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

Every single recipe got bookmarked this week. I love it!

Carla @ Carla

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

So sad this week is over 🙁

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes

I liked the brownie batter milkshake best 🙂

Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel

NEED that milkshake pronto. This heat cannot be taken on alone without the help of something insanely chocolatey.

tiffani hafen

your blog makes me drool.


Next week is just going to be so lackluster without any brownie batter posts from you in my life!

Anne @ Have a Cookie!

You guys did a fantastic job! More please!

Lynna H.

What a fantastic week! drooled everyday!

Rachel Cooks

Good for you for telling it like it is. I love that! I’m sure we all gain and lose readers for a thousand different reasons every day so I hope the emails aren’t stressing you out too much.
Also, I love brownie batter.
I’ll certainly click through to read! 🙂


Sigh…… I’m in love with it all!


So, so fun. Loved this week!

Karen @ Sugartown Sweets

Those brownie batter milkshakes are just too awesome!..and i just finished off a corner brownie @ 11.30 p.m.!!


I woke up this morning saying “I WILL be good, I WILL be good” (on my diet) and then you post this recap and I am craving everything on it!
