Y’all, please forgive me for coming late to the party again.  I’ve been in a funk because we lost the dang Super Bowl.  I’m going to take some inspiration from Luke who gave a fine interview after such an unfortunate loss and try to stay positive.  Seriously, a 17-2 record is something to be proud of!




Remember a couple of years ago when Denver totally blew the Super Bowl from the first snap that went right over Peyton’s head?  It all went south after that, but here they are in 2016 with the Lombardi and the Super Bowl rings.




So, I’m going to have a positive attitude and #KeepPounding because watch out #PanthersNation will be back next year and we’ll be even better!




I thought it would be appropriate to share these brownies with you today because the recipe comes from our own hometown favorite, Amelie’s French Bakery.  Amelie’s is famous for these brownies and for good reason!




Now, these brownies are quite delicious when made according to the recipe, but this was a dark day and we really needed to add some beer.  I’m serious as a train wreck when I tell you that if you can get your hot little hands on some Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout and put it in these brownies it will be one of the best decisions you ever made.  You could even leave out the caramel -it’s that good.




FULL DISCLOSURE:  The caramel is delicious, but a total headache to make.  I seriously made this recipe 4 times and consulted with one of the Amelie’s pastry chefs before I got it right with this dang caramel.  You need to remove the sugar mixture from the heat prior to adding the cream.  Then you need to SLOWLY add the cream or it will blow up and create on unholy mess on your stove.  Finally, the key to serving them is to freeze them after you add the caramel sauce until they are solid, then run your knife under hot water, wipe it dry, then you can cut them.  And make sure that when you put them in the freezer if you cover them make sure nothing is touching the tops of the caramel or it will totally stick. You will not be happy if this happens.  Trust me.

It was a lot, but I’m trying to keep things real ’round these parts.




In my effort to keep things real, be positive, and maintain my sunny disposition, let’s not forget that we have a Valentine’s Day Giveaway event going on here for a $1000 Amazon gift card!  I certainly can’t think of one single good reason why you haven’t entered yet, but there is still time so get busy!




We’re still singing Sweet Caroline and I love Cam, Greg, Luke, and the rest of my Carolina Panthers, so let’s spread some love because our Valentine’s Day giveaway is still going strong!  Enter using the Rafflecopter below and Good Luck!!!!

  1. Girl, I’m so sorry your team lost. I did end up cheering for them, after you commented on my blog, since I didn’t have any team til that point. lol I also tend to root for whoever is losing, so there’s that too. 😛 Anyways, those brownies seem the perfect way to cheer up. And there’s always next year. Although the Jets or Giants might be there instead. Just kidding! I couldn’t care less. I like soccer! 🙂

  2. I forgive you for being late with this post, but only because you were kind enough to give me fair warning. 😉 Totally feel you on the pile of stanky poo that was the Panthers losing the super bowl. Next year, Rachelle! Yay to boozy twinning!! Love these brownies! So cool that the recipe is from your hometown Amelie’s French Bakery!! They look ridiculously delicious and totally worth being a small PITA to whip together! There are very few times when I want to bang my head against a wall for being allergic to cocoa, but this is one of them! Gahhhh- so much gooey goodness going on here! Pinned! Cheers, peanut!

  3. Ah, I see that you found some Southern Tier! They are an upstate New York brewery, and we fell in love with their beers soon after we moved here. The brewery itself is still a couple of hours away, so we haven’t gone over yet…but it’s on the list! I need to grab some of this Creme Brulee Stout, though! Looks delicious!

  4. Sorry! I thought of you during and after the game. 🙁 The Panthers had a great season and now Cam is ready to handle the pressure of that big arena next year. 🙂

    That caramel looks so decadent. And you added beer to the recipe! Brilliant!

  5. I always look forward to your sunny disposition and had no doubt that it would shine bright even after, well, you know. And really – with brownies like these – who wouldn’t be happy? These are the bomb, my dear! So rich and delicious! 🙂

  6. Been there, done that with having a team hat’s lost the Super Bowl. Worst. Feeling. Ever. Plus, I can bet you and Chris aren’t watching any ESPN or SportsCenter or listening to anyone talk about football. That’s what J and I always do when our team loses. I wouldnt feel too bad though if I had a big ol’ platter of these brownies and a big ol’ case of Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout Beer. Beer, chocolate, and sugar are 3 of my favorite things. Well…and Tom Brady…so really four 🙂

  7. I’m sorry about the game, Rachelle! There is always next year when they play against the Patriots! We will have a little friendly rivalry as Karrie and I root for the Patriots while you and Chey cheer on the Panthers! 🙂 These brownies look amazing! I’m glad you were dedicated to making the caramel work because I’m dying to eat every gooey goodness of it!

  8. I’m so sorry your team lost! I wanted them to win! These brownies look gorgeous! Love the thick layer of caramel and the addition of beer! Pinned!

  9. First thing I would do is make those amazing looking brownies! Then get a new laptop. ☺️🍀 Thank you for the chance

  10. Holy cow! Just ignore that I’m drooling over the pictures of these brownies. This has all the ooey gooey craziness that I love in chocolate dessert. Fabulous!
