I know, I know, we have a couple days yet until it’s September, but I couldn’t wait another day! I feel like that Disney World vacation commercial, ya know, from the VHS days….where the little boy says “I’m too excited to sleep”….well, I’m too excited to wait another day to start The September of all the FRIENDS recipes!
First up, BROWNIES. Brownies are mentioned more than once throughout the series, but I’m channeling my inner Rachel Green for this one. Even though throughout the show, Rachel is typically known as being a lousy cook, she whips up some brownies at one point.
“I floss to save lives!” This line, delivered by Phoebe, absolutely kills me. After explaining the deaths of her aunt and her friend, albino Bob, Phoebe tells us why she has such fantastic oral hygiene.
We get this riveting story after Rachel serves Phoebe, along with Ross and Chandler, her homemade brownies.
My husband is a brownie enthusiast, so what better way to kick of my September of all the Friends recipes?!
I browsed Pinterest for a recipe claiming to be the “best brownie”, because as Rachel states, her brownies are homemade. So you can find the recipe here.
This recipe was so simple and so delicious, I will definitely be adding it to my collection.
First, you melt the butter on the stove….which I don’t know about you, but I love melted butter. Or butter period. But the smell of melted butter….”insert Homer Simpson drool gif here”
Then, once the butter is melted, you add your sugars, vanilla and eggs.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh it’s getting even better.
Then you add your dry ingredients and whip it, whip it reeeeal good.
Can I eat it now? Ughhhh. And at this point is smells so dang good.
The recipe called for chocolate chips, all I had was chunks. Same difference.
Poor the delicious goo into your pan (I prefer this kind of pan because hellooooooooo all the corner pieces)
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
So quick, so easy, so delicious. Let these babies cool, put them on a plate, and turn on The One with the Giant Poking Device, Season 3, Episode 8.
Just make sure you floss afterwards 😉
P.S. Let the brownies cool before trying to pry them out of the pan….not speaking from experience or anything…..
