Blogging can be a rather solitary business. Sure, we say that we work in Social Media but usually that just means we are 'social' with people online. Our blogging friends, followers, and fans interact with us via computer but only occasionally do we actually get to hang out with each other in person. When bloggers DO get together with each other in person you can bet there will be food involved. This week, I had the pleasure of hanging out with a few of my blogger friends while we tried out the NEW! Fudge Brownie made with M&M’s® from Great American Cookies!
With winter finally on the way OUT and spring finally here I am starting to crave a bit more excitement in my life! Traveling into Atlanta is always exciting (and slightly terrifying given the insane amount of traffic!). I met up with Stacie from The Divine Miss Mommy (our host for the afternoon) along with Piera from Jolly Mom, Alicia from The Mommy Insider, and Kesha from We Got Kidz. We had a great time just sitting around chit chatting, having lunch, and enjoying some delicious goodies from Great American Cookies!
Don't those look seriously scrumptious? It was hard to choose which one I wanted to try the most! While we drooled over the selection of cookies we enjoyed scrolling through twitter and checking out what other bloggers around the US were doing at their own #BrownieBling house parties. This little celebration was more than just an Atlanta event and it was nice seeing some of the pictures and tweets from my fellow bloggers. While we relaxed we had to take a minute to wonder just how many M&M's Stacie had managed to fit in the jar....what's the prize for a correct guess? A puppy? A million dollars? We decided on a tiara since nobody had either of the other two readily accessible!
Our little #BrownieBling party had a purpose...other than just getting together with friends. We were there to try out the NEW! Fudge Brownie made with M&M’s®. Great American Cookies already offers other varieties of brownies but this one decked out with M&Ms is their newest addition. In fact, they offer an extensive selection of all sorts of delicious cookies, Cookie Cakes, brownies and other treats. If you are craving something sweet and delicious I highly recommend you try their NEW! Fudge Brownie made with M&M’s®. Thick, fudgy, moist and loaded with chocolate it was a delicious addition to our blogger party!
Sadly, we had only 2 hours to chat, eat, tweet, and be on our way. Before heading home we were thrilled to learn that there were plenty of leftover cookies and brownies to bring home with us. Let me tell you...my kids and husband were thrilled and they firmly believe that blogging is just about the greatest job EVER if it means that I bring them home treats like this! My son dove right for the NEW! Fudge Brownie made with M&M’s® and it was definitely his favorite out of all the treats that came home with me. Let me just remind you that if you DO decide to stock up on these new brownies make sure you have milk around! There is nothing that goes better with chocolate brownies than cold milk!
Do you dunk your treats in milk or just eat them as is?
