so today is the last day of spring break, and what do i get? a frickin’ blizzard that started at 5am today and is going to continue until at least 10pm. seriously. it’s march 21st and i already have over a foot of snow in my yard. LAME. i had totally allowed myself to go to the place in my mind where we were done with snow for the year, and then this happened. i want to just close all the blinds, pretend it’s not there, and wait for it to melt.
in other disappointments, i just ruined one of my favorite desserts of all time and i’m not (too) ashamed to admit that i almost cried about it. i have been craving this dessert for a really long time, and i keep not making it because i’m afraid i’ll eat the whole pan, but the other night i was about to go crazy for it so i decided i would make them “soon.” after being bummed about the million-inch blizzard this afternoon, i decided that soon would be today. unfortunately, when i was about 90% done with the project, i decided to change it up a little bit based on what some people on VRF say they do with my recipe, because i thought, “eh, what the heck?” …now, truth be told, i’ve always liked it the way i make it, which i guess is why i always make it that way (ha), but i thought, well, if they found a way to improve on it a little, why not give it a shot? so i added a tiny bit of vanilla and soymilk to the chocolate chips i was melting, and within 30 seconds my lovely beautiful melty chocolate had turned into a chocolate sponge. i am not happy. i didn’t have any other chocolate chips so i couldn’t just scrap the sponge and start fresh, so i had to make do with the sponge. the peanut butter cup bar thingies are basically ruined, and i am soooo bummed. stupid spring break.
