Do you want to know something? I’ve never browned butter before. I know! Actually, I’m not sure it’s all that common a thing to do. Does everyone just sit around browning butter? If not, they should! The aroma is amazing.
I made Smitten Kitchen’s brown butter brown sugar shorties on Sunday. I couldn’t wait. As soon as I saw the ingredients, there was no holding me back. I love butter and brown sugar more than anything. My obsession with this duo is quite unhealthy. But it’s fantastic.
My all time favorite candy from See’s is a rich chocolate-drenched buttery brown-sugary concoction that I can’t get enough of. The only problem with buying them is that I don’t stop after a couple. I walk out with many other delicious chocolates that neither I, nor my hips, need. It’s a real tragedy, I tell you.
And I made this brown sugar candy recipe on my birthday. Oh mama. I ate it all. By myself. Then cried on my husband’s shoulder. “I have a problem!” I wailed. He patted my head and tried to console me and very comfortingly said, “yes, you do.”
I can’t help it. The flavor of these two amazing ingredients melding together is pure bliss.
That is all.
