Friday Frivolity - Brownie Edition

It's time for this week's edition of Friday Frivolity - the blog party for all things fun, funny, hopeful & happy!

Just wait until you see what we dug up for this week's theme...

At last week's party, we got ready for the start of Advent.

This week brings us Brownie Day, so we're sharing yummy recipes -- which means, of course, that I have to share some of Guilty Chocoholic Mama's yummiest treats, because she is my go-to girl for all things chocolate:

Brownie-Batter Stuffed Crescent Rolls -- I made these the day after she posted the recipe and let me tell you, they are rich, they are gooey, and they are delicious!

Life by Chocolate Pie (Brownie Chocolate Mousse Pie) -- Only Elizabeth would take the typical "death by chocolate" dessert description and turn it on its head! I don't know if this one will add years to your life, but it will certainly add years of happiness to it -- just make sure your beaters are clean!

Brownie-Batter Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies -- Can't decide between cookies or brownies? Have them both! This recipe has solved 99.9% of the dessert-decision conflicts in our house and for that, I am forever grateful. Plus, it's delicious!

Finally, leave it to Elizabeth to relate being a mom to a winning dessert, but that's just what her pal Christine's guest post does in How Motherhood is Like a Brownie. (Bonus brownie recipe, too!)

Now time for the new stuff!
