Sometimes you just want some comfort food. This weekend was one of those times. I woke up on Saturday morning, wondering what I was going to bring to the raw pot-luck that day. My mind was filled with thoughts of easy to make, savory stand-by’s, but nothing jumped out at me. As I looked at the what I had in the cabinets, it dawned on me that it might just be a comfort food kinda day.
I couldn’t be more pleased with how these turned out. Folks at the pot-luck gave them a big thumbs up and of course, the plate was empty when the pot-luck was over. Soft, sweet, chocolaty, just like how a brownie should be, but with the frosting on top, these will take you right into comfort food bliss!
This is a very rich, almost cream cheese style icing or spread for fruit.
These measurements are rough, I just added everything to taste. I was very surprised at how much like real icing this tastes! Would be awesome on raw carrot cupcakes!
Who knew you can make something that so resembles the classic? And without the use of nut milk too! And yet, the first time I tasted this with cinnamon, I thought, “Hmmm… tastes like Christmas.” And my grandmother said, “Hmmm… if a person didn’t know better, they would think this is watered down cow milk.” To which I replied, “Like skim milk?!”
