On April 20th my son had his 5th birthday. April 20th doesn’t have the best track record. The day has a history of events like the Columbine shootings, National Pot Smoking Day, and Hitler’s birthday to just list a few.
I like to think that my beautiful son being born on that day was heaven’s way of evening the score.
My son takes after me because he loves chocolate just as much as I do, if not more. For his birthday party with his friends he really wanted to pick out a cake at the store. Ugh. I wanted to make this Brownie Pudding that my friend Jenn told me about, so it was the perfect excuse for us to make it for my chocolate lovin’ son at home on his birthday.
I don’t know if Brownie pudding is the best name for it. It’s more like Brownie Crack. The top has a hard layer that I let my son “crack” with a big spoon. Inside is a gooey, chewy center.
There was a man was on my neighbor’s roof pressuring cleaning it when we were in the backyard “cracking” and eating this dessert. I’m not sure if he was staring in horror or jealously as we went to town on it, but he definitely kept staring. Not my best moment and to have a stranger witness my lack of self control, even worse.
You must eat this with a scoop of ice cream or some fresh whipped cream. It’s really rich but worth every calorie.
