I also have a vague memory of a church party Friday night. It was a chili and chocolate cook-off. I'm not sure, but I think I entered the chocolate competition (by mistake) with this amazing recipe from Stie. I may have tasted the brownie batter. And the cream cheese frosting. And the peanut-butter-chocolate rice crispies. I know, right?
I also may have nibbled at a few of the competing entries. Just to make sure mine was the best. And it was...I won!
