So even though I’ve been married slightly over a year and may not be considered a newlywed, I think I’ve discovered a magic brownie. NO, not that kind. :0
A month ago, I got a toffee brownie recipe (google- SYMPHONY BROWNIES) from a coworker and my husband went bananas. He’s not a brownie guy. He’s a cookie guy and even then we rarely keep treats in the house, unless they are gifts or leftover dessert with friends. Anyway, he bugged me to make them after he tried my coworker’s offering. Wouldn’t even let me make blueberry muffins until the brownies were made FIRST. Then –well–he did some crazy-man antics, eating all the crumbs around each individually plated/wrapped brownie I had made for our dinner guests, b/c he couldn’t find the extra brownies when he came home from work and I was asleep. Finally, he ate all the leftovers within a day or two without mentioning it to me! A week later, he said he would be a happy man for life– all he needs from me is to make those brownies for him on a regular basis. Hmmmm, the house has been extra clean and he’s been cooking dinner a lot lately. I think this might just be the trick.
Has anyone stumbled across a ‘magic’ meal/recipe that brings your DH to his knees?

@808bride: I made a recipe I found on here last night. It was chicken tacos. I put 2 chicken breasts into the slow cooker and poured a jar of salsa over it then let it cook for 4 hours and then shredded the chicken and put it into tacos. My husband LOVED it and we are going to eat it for lunch today as well! I kept saying to him “you can thank Weddingbee for this” haha

And then he said “Thank you Bee” and I said “well it wasnt Bee herself who made the recipe” and then he was like “Yes but without Bee there would be no Weddingbee so you wouldnt have found this recipe” hahah

Ohhhhh, I wish I could bake as my man has a huge sweet tooth. But it’s too scientific for me and I love the creativity in cooking !
My magic recipie is 3 meat meatballs. When I tell him it’s meatball night, he looks like a kid on Christmas morning !

There are likely better descriptions thru Google. Basically, it’s box-made Fudge brownies (You can get a family sized box for a 9X13 pan but I used regular sized box in a small squarish pan sprayed with Pam because I wanted thicker brownies and not buy so many bars.)
All you do different is line up Symphony bars (look in the candy aisle) halfway through pouring the batter into the pan. Cook it 5-10 mins longer than it says on the box. My coworker told me something else I didn’t do, after the fact, but now I forget what she said but that’s the way I made them. Really, it’s simple and you can get fancier (add nuts) by Googling it if you want. Seems too good to be true, huh?
BTW, DH got low sugar vanilla ice cream to eat with it….NOT good. Get the real thing, french vanilla or vanilla bean. Much better. 🙂 Don’t forget to individually wrap brownies in plastic to save for the next day. 🙂
OOOH, KEEP THE IDEAS AND STORIES COMING! 😀
