If you were like me, or any kid for that matter, hearing your parent rustle through the mixing bowls meant one thing and one thing only…baking. Although before the baking process began there was an even more crucial aspect that meant more than any warm, gooey baked cookie, brownie or cupcake…the batter! The chocolatey smoothness of brownie batter was always my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I’d never pass up a good lick of the cookie dough bowl either but there was just something about that rich, cocoa, sugary leftover bit in the bowl that I couldn’t wait to get my little eager hands on. Literally.
