This week's selection is a gorgeous brownie cake topped with caramel and peanuts. It was selected by Tammy of Wee Treats by Tammy. You can find the complete recipe on her blog, so go get it!
I love being a part of this group. A good deal of the recipes I've made would be ones that I probably wouldn't have ever tried. Despite my love for this group, I'm admitting that I've started trying to get creative with how I can get rid of these fun baked creations without eating them myself. The past several weeks I've given away more of the goodies than I've consumed. This week was no different.
Our friends Darren and Becky just had an adorable baby boy named Jacob. We had the pleasure of going to meet him shortly after he was born. And what did we bring along with us? A Caramel Peanut Topped Brownie Cake. Who is more deserving of a yummy cake than new parents? No one. So as gorgeous as the cake was, I parted with it so that I wouldn't consume the entire thing myself. And look how adorable this little guy is. I didn't want to put him down.
Fortunately I did get to taste a piece of this as we were visiting. It was the only reason I put the child down... his mother was probably thankful! And the cake not only looked good, but it tasted good as well. I think it would be extraordinary with a scoop of ice cream. Maybe I'll make a mini one sometime so I can enjoy it myself. But for now, my hips are thanking me that I gave them a break this week.
