Instead of calling this recipe Cookie Dough Poptart Brownies, I should seriously just call them my apology to bikini season … or indulgence… but darrrrrrrrn delicious.

Technically, we could start working on our swimsuit bodies after a tray a brownies … riiiiiiggghhht?!?

And also, long weekend.

This weekend, in true Victoria Day Long Weekend fashion there will be a flood of food – and trust me, this little lady aint mad at all!!

Can we also talk about something only semi-random … strawberries.

I want all of them. In my face. On cake. With yogurt. You name it, gimmmmmmmaaaayyy. I know this recipe is far from having anything to do with strawberries… buuuuuttt long weekend – summer – strawberries … logic?

Maybe not.

As you know, I’ve done quite a number when coming to trashing up brownies – and, this my darlings is no exception!! The trashier the better … well, sometimes …. Okay, maybe only when it comes to brownies. Or pizza. Or cookies. AmIright?!
