Salted Caramel Brownie Bites

 
 
All of you moms out there know what it's like to try and lose those extra pounds and the kangaroo pouch after the babies are born. I find myself counting calories, working out.. and the entire time I am dreaming of things filled with ooey gooey chocolate, slathered in caramel. It's a problem. What does a mom who loves brownies, but wants to spend the summer in a bikini do ?



My solution? Make the brownies!

But only a small batch. If you are like me you... things with caramel and chocolate do not stand a chance. You have issues with self control. That big 9x13 pan of fudgy goodness is going to be eaten. It just happens and before you know it. You are look at My Fitness Pal and just weep because you have gone over your 1220 calorie goal by.... 1000. Those brownies will squash the hopes of wearing a bikini at the beach this summer. Instead of a 6 pack... you will gain a double chin.

However the smaller batch of brownies made in a mini muffin pan, will ensure you only have a bite or two. Yes you might go over your calories a tad.... but nothing in comparison to that 9x12 pan of brownies. The hopes of sun bathing on the beach might just happen after all!.... Who am I kidding, I have three kids... What's relaxation in the hot sun like?



Today to help my friend Rachel from Rachel Cooks out I am guest posting on her blog. Come get the recipe for my Salted Caramel Brownie Bites!

  5. LOL, as much as I would love the 6-pack and fabulous bikini-ready body by summer, I may just have to welcome the double chin because these brownie bites look delicious! I'd fool myself into thinking I'd just have one, when really after one, I'd tell myself, well...since they're only "bite" sized, I'm allowed to have seven errr...ten bites ;) Have a fun and relaxing weekend!
