I can’t take credit for this creation. This is a Mr. Baker Bettie creation. I feel bad because I often don’t indulge his requests. Things like, “You should make a chocolate chip cheesecake with oreo crust and peanut butter cup frosting.” Or, “Let’s make a chocolate chip cookie brownie layer thing so I can eat it for breakfast all week.” That last part. That is the kicker. It isn’t about not wanting to make his requests, it’s about why he wants me to make them. To eat them for breakfast. Oy.
But I love this man more than I can really express so when I found out last night that both of us were getting a snow day off of work, I decided to humor him. And we rarely bake together. So we got the store before the storm set in and got a few things to keep us snowed in for at least the day. And we baked together. Mr. Bettie ran the mixer and I added ingredients to the bowl. He was so cute as the mixer turned on too high and ingredients started splattering out of the bowl. Then we cuddled on the couch while our creation baked and filled the house with the best smells.
Our snow day will be filled with more snuggling, lots of relaxing, lots of chocolate, crappy reality tv (teen mom anyone?), and tons of love. If you are also experiencing this snow storm, be safe out there if you must brave it!
