Well he got his wish, but I really couldn't just leave it at that.
The least I could do was bake him a delicious dessert to go with dinner.
The tough part was deciding what type of dessert to make.
I always go for cake right off the bat, but he doesn't like that so much. He is more of a cookie and brownie kind of guy.
So I decided to make him brownies and fill them with three different kinds of chips (chocolate, peanut butter, and white chocolate).
Triple Threat Brownies
1 2/3 C sugar
3/4 C butter (melted)
2 Tbsp water
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 C all purpose flour
3/4 C baking cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 C chocolate chips
1/4 C peanut butter chips
1/4 C white chocolate chips
Combine your sugar, butter, and water.
Stir in your eggs and vanilla extract.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Then add to wet mixture.
Mix in your chocolate chips.
Spread into a greased 9x13 pan and top with peanut butter and white chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean).
As you can see I didn't go the healthy route I went completely BAD...but hey it is only Father's Day once a year.
Substitutions could easily be made to make this vegan, but my husband SOMETIMES gets tired of my substitutions and just craves treats made the old fashioned way (with fat and animal products)...who am I not to oblige, after all he helped me create three of the most precious children ever.
(sometimes it is hard to get a shot of them all happy at once)
