Sunday's are Chocolate

I would like to take a mulligan on the recipe. If you don't know what I mulligan is, it is a do over it came from the game of golf. Maybe I should of taken a mulligan on marriage not this time but the one before no I don't want to go back. This recipe was easy and it sounded so tasty. I will say they were just like the recipe claims chewy and fudgy. They just didn't look like I was expecting them to look. But at 135 calories who can resist.

It's disappointing when a recipe that you've worked hard on doesn't turn out the way you expect it to. But it's even worse when it's not edible....and I've had my share of those occasions! Sorry your bars didn't turn out the way you thought they would but I know that they'd be gobbled up here in my house!! ;)

There must have been something in the air this weekend. I made one of our favorite cookies and the chocolate seized on me making the batch a dud. Hugs. Been there done that, too.
